We are pleased to invite you to the 13th Annual Fred Attneave Memorial Lecture to hear the talk Advances in the Search for Signatures of Consciousness by world-renowned scientist Stanislas Dehaene.
The talk is Friday, May 31 from 4-6 and is open to the public.
Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers across the globe from a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects in neuroscience and psychology. Year after year, global Brainhack events have brought together researchers to participate in open collaboration, and regional Brainhack events help to continue the momentum.
Brainhack Global 2018 will unite regional events occurring the same week at 30+ different sites across 16 countries. We are participating as the only site in Oregon. Our site’s event is generously funded by the University of Oregon Graduate School, Robert and Beverly Lewis Center for Neuroimaging, UO Vice Provost for Research and Innovation, and UO Psychology Department.
If you’re interested in attending and want to receive updates on Brainhack 2018, please fill out this form.
What’s going to happen at Brainhack?
May 4: We will host a workshop to introduce attendees to open science, open data, and reproducible neuroimaging tools (i.e. GitHub, BIDS, fmriprep)
May 5 & 6: We will all contribute to projects during times for open hacking – attendees can either pitch project ideas to work on or join proposed project teams. Prior to our event, we will collect project ideas from attendees. Each team will present their progress at the end of Brainhack. There will also be mini-unconferences, which are an opportunity to discuss topics of interest with other attendees, related to their areas of expertise.
What kind of projects can I work on?
Current project pitches include contributing to open science programs, such as NeuroVault and Brain Imaging Data Structure Apps. We welcome any projects related to the study of the brain and/or behavior.
I have a project idea! How can I let others know about it?
Great! Please fill out this form to let others know about your project idea.
I don’t have a project idea. What should I do?
It’s okay if you don’t have a project idea of your own, because other projects will need your skills and support. Take a look at this spreadsheet to look at current project ideas. All skills are valued at a Brainhack–you can always be a beta tester.
I don’t have a background in neuroscience -and/or- I don’t have strong programming skills. Can I still attend?
Yes! All are welcome. The purpose of Brainhack is to bring together people with different skills to learn from one another.
Professor Jennifer Freyd was an invited speaker at the #AfterMeToo symposium organized by Toronto’s Globe and Mail newspaper. This purpose of this symposium was to discuss new policies against sexual misconduct and to explore solutions which could make workplaces safer environments.

The 28th Annual Fred Attneave Lecture will be taking place Friday, April 21st at 2:30PM in room 101 of the Jaqua Academic Center.
This year’s speaker will be Dr. Mara Mather, PI of the Emotion and Cognition Lab and Professor of Gerontology and Psychology at the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, University of Southern California. Dr. Mather studies the role of emotions in memory and cognition and will be presenting her work in her talk, “During intense or emotionally arousing moments how does the brain know what to encode?“.
To learn more about Dr. Mather’s work please visit her lab website. See the flyer below for more details on the talk. We hope to see you there!
A team of graduate students, postdocs, and affiliated faculty hosted the Eugene site of BrainHack Global, 2017. Brain Hack brings teams of scientists and programmers together to develop code to address outstanding scientific challenges. From the Brain Hack site:
Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience. Year after year, global Brainhack events have brought together researchers to participate in open collaboration, and regional Brainhack events keep the momentum going throughout the year. Brainhack Global 2017 will unite several regional Brainhack events throughout the world during March 2-5, 2017.
Great work, team! We look forward to seeing what you built this weekend!
