Women in Neuroscience

Meet the Women in Neuroscience Committee

Neuroscience is for girls (but not women – yet)


There is a tendency to think that the gap between the number of men and women in science is closing. However, the statistics throw up data which suggests we might conclude the opposite. It could even be that, today, the discrimination suffered by women scientists is even more subtle and difficult to perceive. On the one hand, the number of women graduates in the different university degrees has been growing continuously and, in some cases, amply exceeds the number of men. On the other hand, this data has not had any effect over the last 30 years when we look at the positions of higher responsibility and prestige in science.

Get to know our women neuroscientists


A series of interviews with women members of SENC, with a dual objective:

i) to the raise the profile of women neuroscientists, so that their careers and experience can be a role model for other women and for society in general, and

ii) to gather together ideas and demands that can be channelled and put into practice through the SENC.

Brilliant presentation by Yukiko Goda (Riken Japan): Measures to integrate women in conferences and academic positions are improving... but Japan -a country highly dominated by men- ranks 119 in World Economic Forum rank for gender parity. Still difficult as a woman faculty....
