SfN is calling upon members to harness the power of Wikipedia and support the Society's mission of promoting public education about neuroscience.


Wikipedia, a free online encyclopedia, has become one of the major sources of information used by the public.


SfN's Public Education and Communication Committee (PECC) recently reviewed the main Wikipedia neuroscience overview section and entries on 10 major branches of neuroscience. Many of the entries were still under construction and incomplete.


SfN aims to improve and expand Wikipedia's neuroscience content by encouraging members to edit and contribute.
