Current OHBM Special Interest Groups (SIG)
OHBM Student and Postdoc SIG
The OHBM-Student and Postdoc SIG is intended to disseminate information relevant to students and postdocs, such as job and study opportunities, funding, scholarships and awards, workshops, leadership opportunities, and details about the annual conference. We also organize a Social Night for students and postdocs at the Human Brain Mapping conference each year.
OHBM Open Science SIG
The OHBM Open Science SIG mission is to advance neuroimaging research by fostering the open sharing of ideas, data, and tools between members of the OHBM community. This will be accomplished by organizing educational events, supporting collaborative initiatives, and providing mentorship to junior researchers. In our first year, the SIG will focus on three contributions to the OHBM annual meeting: 1) organize a Hackathon to precede the annual meeting, 2) introduce the tools of open science by proposing a “Brainhacking 101” educational course, and 3) propose hands-on tutorials and collaborative Open Science projects during the OHBM conference.
OHBM Brain-Art SIG
The scope of the Brain–Art SIG is to promote the exchange between Art & Science by fostering the dialogue between artists and members of the OHBM community. We aim to (1) encourage artistic approaches and perspectives to understanding human brain function, (2) facilitate the development of novel approaches for the visualization of scientific data, and (3) provide a model of interaction between disciplines while enhancing the public outreach of OHBM. We achieve these goals through annual activities such as the Brain–Art Exhibition and the Brain–Art Competition.
