    Join the ALBA-IBRO Session: Deconstructing Colonial and Historical Biases in Neuroscience
    • 13 November 2023
    • 18:30-20:30
    • Marriott Marquis: Marquis Blrms 3/4
    • Sponsored by: IBRO, SfN, FENS and ALBA Network

    This event aims to shed light on the impact of colonialism and historical biases in shaping the field of neuroscience. Speakers will provide both US and European perspectives on how these biases have influenced our understanding of the brain and how they still affect diversity in research and academia today. Through discussions, we’ll explore how these biases have affected research practices, knowledge production, and clinical applications, and what is currently being done at the research, institutional, and lab levels to address these issues. This event will offer a platform for critical reflection and dialogue on how we can collectively strive for a more inclusive and equitable neuroscience, by taking an international approach to fighting discrimination and racism. The session will include a Q&A with the audience and will be followed by some networking around snacks and drinks.

    We can’t wait to meet you in Washington, D.C.!
