The annual cognitive neuroscience competition for high school students (CNCH)


The third annual cognitive neuroscience competition for high school students (CNCH) was held at the Allame Heli high school in October 2017.  Thirty teams out of a total of 300 teams from all over the country were accepted to participate in the last stage of the competition. Five teams were selected as the final top winners based on an evaluation by a distinguished nine-member jury.

The teams consisting of biology and math students and had one year to study and review the literature related to cognitive sciences and to come up with a novel idea to carry out their research. The aim was to encourage interdisciplinary activities from the very start among the students.
A wide variety of basic activities from neuroscience to electronics, statistical analysis, and computer programming were carried out all by the students themselves and the results are quite impressive. We hope these talented future scientists will get the recognition they deserve from our outstanding Iranian neuroscientist association abroad. Let’s enjoy their achievements!!”
