Scholar Video Showcase

Welcome to the CONP Scholar Showcase, where we host short video presentations that feature the wide variety of research activities our scholars are engaged in and the equally large array of their contributions to the open-neuroscience community.

The CONP scholarship program supports highly qualified personnel in conducting collaborative projects that are directly related to building platforms, resources, datasets, analytics, or disseminating neuroscience results that will contribute to the advancement of open neuroscience.

The CONP congratulates its scholars on their excellent work and ongoing participation in the open-science community, developing and promoting the means to make accessible and transparent neuroscience research the new norm.
