NeuroX 2015 : NeuroXchange
Call For Papers
Students must be undergraduates currently attending a Canadian University.
Students must be currently involved or have previously taken part in the research project they are presenting.
The research project must be completed under the supervision of a faculty member at a university located within Canada. The student must obtain consent from their supervisor to present the research project.
The research project to be presented must be in accordance with one of the research areas in neuroscience (see Research Areas)
The research must be consistent with McMaster Universitys Academic Integrity Guidelines.
The NeuroXchange Conference supports experimental and theoretical research in the field of neuroscience with a focus on the following key research areas:
Cognitive & Computational Neuroscience
The study of biological substrates underlying cognition and mental processes. This includes theoretical modelling of information processing properties and cognitive function.
Health & Clinical Neuroscience
The study of the nervous system and how it is affected by neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience
The study of neurons at the cellular and molecular levels, ranging from the study of
neuronal physiological properties to protein chemistry.
Systems & Behavioural Neuroscience
The study of neural circuits, systems and pathways of information flow and their role in influencing behaviour.
All abstracts submitted for poster presentations are accepted provided that the research to be presented relates to one of the Research Areas in neuroscience.
Posters are typically 48" x 36" or 36" x 48".
Posters will be displayed on poster boards during one of two scheduled presentation sessions. Presenters must be available at their poster during their assigned time slot.
Your poster should contain the following features:
Materials and Methods
All abstracts submitted for oral presentations are reviewed by the NeuroXchange Planning Committee, as there are limitted spots available for oral presentations.
Selection criteria is based on relation to one of the Research Areas in neuroscience and perceived level of interest in the research to be presented.
Oral presentations will be approximately 10 minutes long with a 5 minute question period following the presentation.
Confirmation emails for poster and oral presentations will be sent out once the selection commitee has considered each student.
Two honorariums will be awarded for the most outstanding poster presentations, as determined by a panel of undergraduate and graduate judges. Honorariums will also be given to three "honourable mentions".
One honorarium will be awarded for the most outstanding oral presentation, as determined by a panel of undergraduate and graduate judges. A "runner-up" honorarium will also be awarded.
Multiple abstract publications in the McMaster Meducator Journal will be awarded to outstanding presentations, as determined by a panel of McMaster Meducator Executives.
Publication in the McMaster Journal of Interdisciplinary Sciences (MJoIS) will be awarded to one outstanding presentation, as determined by a panel of MJoIS Executives.
