Why Brainhack ?

BrainHacks are collaborative events that focus on the open sharing of ideas, models, code, and data. They bring together brain experts and enthusiasts from a variety of backgrounds to build relationships, learn from one another, and collaborate on projects related to the neurosciences.

We also encourage new programmers and students/scientists to participate in our hackathon this year. We pair experienced Brain Hackers with new folks to help kickstart your growth as a neurohacker!

Attendees are encouraged but not required to bring their own projects into the hackathon to work collaboratively with others. Project inspirations could stem from other projects proposed by attendees, ongoing work you're involved in, or new research areas that you've been waiting to have an opportunity to jump on!
