When some people hear “scientist” or “neuroscientist,” they immediately think of a man. However, according to the National Science Foundation, 43% of scientists and engineers under the age of 75 are women, and if you look under the age of 29, then 56% (8 incredible, 2021). Since it is International Women’s Day and women make such a big contribution to the field, this post will highlight some of the amazing achievements women have made in neuroscience.
These are just four of the many women who make contributions to science every day, specifically in neuroscience. To our women in science: thank you for paving the way for female success in the field and for inspiring us to pursue our largest goals. Keep up the amazing work!
