The Neuroscience Society (DUNE) was founded in 2020 and provides a multi-disciplinary community for all Durham University students interested in neuroscience to meet, engage with and support each other. We hold regular discussion meetings centred around a different area of neuroscience each time, from cellular neurobiology to computational neuroscience and neurophilosophy. We also put on more formal academic events, including talks with guest speakers approximately every two weeks. Our ‘events’ page details all previous and upcoming events, which usually take place on a Monday evening. The society aims to be research-focused through keeping up to date with current discoveries in the field and prides itself in guiding interested members towards neuroscientific opportunities beyond the society, such as national conferences and relevant research studentships. Membership is free and we are open to all students, regardless of their degree course or year.


Please sign up through the Durham Student’s Union page to become an official member, after which you are welcome to join our Teams. We also have a Facebook and Instagram for the latest information and updates.


“Welcome to Durham University Neuroscience Society and thank you to everyone who has supported us so far this year – I hope you enjoyed our events and discovered new interests. As a recently formed society, we’d be particularly grateful for any feedback about how we can improve. I look forward to seeing you at society events in the future!”

– Catherine Whittle, Founder & President 2020-21
