Neuromodulation of Neural Microcircuits (NM2)

Organizers: Srikanth Ramaswamy, Henry Markram, Mriganka Sur, Anita Disney, Menahem Segal, Michael Hasselmo, Seung-Hee Lee, Alexander Thiele, Amy Arnsten
Speaker gender ratio: 8 women : 26 men (24%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 28%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword neuromodulation  AND circuits and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 204 results.
