Welcome to TUNA!

We are the Tulane University Neuroscience Association. Our goal is to celebrate neuroscience in all of its forms. We strive to expose the public and our peers to the study of the brain, and to create a community for Tulane University students interested in neuroscience. You do not need to be a neuroscience major in order to join our club or attend our events - we welcome everyone with an interest in the brain!

Meetings are held throughout the semester and a variety of service and community outreach opportunities are available to members and non-members alike. Purchase of a membership for $10 funds these events and scores you an awesome TUNA shirt!

The 2015-16 Edition of the TUNA Synapse is now available for online viewing!

The Greater New Orleans Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience sponsored activities on "Your Sensational Brain" at the Children's Resource Center.
