Atlanta is home to great Neuroscience Research and Public Education programs from many participating institutions. The goal of the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience (ACSfN) is to provide a forum for bringing together these resources.

The ACSfN sponsors Brain Awareness Programs in Atlanta. Teachers can request a scientist to visit their classroom. ACSFN Participating Institutions maintain a variety of Neuroscience Teaching Materials including Brains that may be used in outreach activities.


Neuroscience Resources for K-12 Educators

Emory/Yerkes Lending Library Materials
The ACSFN has a collection of resources that is available for use in K-12, undergraduate and graduate classrooms, as well as for special events, lectures, or workshops. These materials are housed at Yerkes National Primate Research Center and can be 'checked out' for educational purposes. See the lending library catalog for ideas.
