The Center for Neuroendocrine Studies (CNS) of the University of Massachusetts Amherst consists of the research groups of faculty members who share an interest in understanding the relationships among hormones, the brain, physiology, and behavior. The specific research interests of the members of CNS are diverse and include numerous influences, techniques, and levels of analysis.
The Center fosters neuroendocrine research by sponsoring scientific meetings, facilitating the flow of information among laboratories, and coordinating efforts to obtain funding for training, equipment, and research.Read more
Every other Wednesday at 8:30 am, CNS holds breakfast meetings. During these meetings, two CNS or affiliated members each give a 15 minute presentation followed by a 10 minute discussion. We discuss ongoing research or planned research, a new technique or a relevant paper. Anything can be on the table, as long as it is relevant to neuroendocrinology. In addition to great science, the center provides bagels, coffee, hot water, teabags, juices, etc. All are welcome.
