Written by Simone Le Roux

July 3, 2017

For the next twelve months, we will be running a blog article writing competition aimed at PhD students and Post Docs who have a particular interest in technology and techniques in the neurophysiology lab.  We have monthly and annual prizes up for grabs, plus the opportunity to get wider exposure for your writing.

How does the competition work?

Submit your article as soon as possible, sending them to

The topic of your article can be a topic of your choice (with the focus on techniques and/or technology within Neuroscience) or we can send you an email with a list of 20 topics.

Each month we will choose the best article and this will get posted onto our online blog and social media accounts – you will also have the chance to be published on Technology Networks (an ‘internationally recognised publisher that provides access to the latest scientific news, products, research, videos and posters’). The chosen article will be from all submitted articles and not only from those received in the current month, which means your chances of being selected are better the sooner you submit. 

Every article that gets selected for publication will win a prize and after the 12 months, each winner will be entered into the draw for the amazing finale prize! 

You’ve got to be in it to win it! To enter please fill in the form below with your contact details and research project information, you’ll receive an email with the topics list within 24 hours.

Best of luck!
