2 About The Brain Domain

 About The Brain Domain

The Brain Domain is a science communication and engagement website designed to translate complex neuroscience research and concepts to the lay audience.
Neuroscience research affects all of us, however news articles can often be sensationalised, while journal articles are hidden behind paywalls and full of complicated jargon. This makes research findings highly inaccessible. The Brain Domain aims to make this information easier to understand for scientists and non-scientists alike.
Additionally, with the rise of open science, it is becoming increasingly important for early-career researchers to communicate their research to the general public. The Brain Domain provides a platform for young neuroscientists to develop their scientific writing and communication skills, in addition to gaining publicity and acknowledgement for their hard work.

Ok, what do you mean by “neuroscience”?

Neuroscience is a complex and ever-evolving scientific discipline, for which the definition is constantly changing. Broadly speaking, neuroscience is defined as the scientific study of the nervous system. This involves the complex network of nerves and other cells which run throughout our body, cluster in the brain, and controls everything we do – including thinking, feeling, and moving. Whilst the field traditionally focused on studying the biology of the brain, neuroscience is now considered a multidisciplinary science, incorporating biology, chemistry, genetics, psychology, engineering, computation, anatomy, and philosophy. In essence, neuroscience involves using all the tools at our disposal to understand how our brain functions in everyday life and what goes wrong in disease.

Who is involved in the Brain Domain?

The project is managed by a dedicated team of early career neuroscience researchers based at Cardiff University, each with diverse backgrounds and interests. Our writers are often neuroscience researchers but we also encourage article submissions from anyone with experience in neuroscience, whether you have a scientific background or not! We are particularly keen to hear from healthcare professionals and people with personal experiences of mental health or neurological conditions.

Meet our members!.

Can I get involved?

YES! We’re keen to recruit more writers and build our community. If you’re interested then the best way to get involved is to check out the Article Guidelines/Submission page and send us a draft! If you don’t want to write for us, but would like to get involved in another way then that’s fine too! Just send us a message on the contact us page.
