Diversity in Brain Research: Does it matter?
In this webinar, the Human Brain Project encourages scientists to consider sex, gender and additional diversity factors in neuroscience and related fields: because biology, social factors and culture play an important role in shaping the brain.
Prof. Lutz Jäncke and Dr. Frances Quevenco will discuss recent findings and different viewpoints on how and when sex/gender differences in brain research are relevant. The event will be moderated by Prof. Katrin Amunts.
The Human Brain Project will also present the winners of our Diversity In Research Paper Awards (DIRPA), who will outline their own research results and join the discussion.
