Agnès
Gruart

Professor or equivalent position at Pablo de Olavide University
Spain Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Behavioral neuroscience Cognitive neuroscience Motor systems neuroscience Neural/synaptic structure and function , Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal Data analysis and statistics Electrophysiology (slow waves) Electrophysiology (synaptic physiology) Electrophysiology (unit activity) In vivo monitoring
Reason of joining Alba Network :
In order to achieve equality among all researchers (and in society, in general), it is necessary to create structures and networks that serve as support, to identify problems and, above all, to seek solutions. Collective actions such as those that Alba intends to carry out are the best strategy.

Emma
Laurent

Research/Staff scientist at NYU
United States Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Behavioral neuroscience Cognitive neuroscience Computational neuroscience and modeling Disorders of the nervous system History, teaching, public awareness, and societal , Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal Computation, modeling, and simulation Data analysis and statistics Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
Reason of joining Alba Network :
After developing and working with BrainWaves (link attached), a program aimed at bringing hands on EEG research into the classroom, my passion for STEM outreach and equal opportunity in the foundational years in high school regardless of economic background has grown immensely. If we can cultivate interests in neuroscience at a young age, we may then finally be able to see a demographic change reflected in the professional world of research.
