Brain Network Dynamics

Organizers: Albrecht Haase, Jorge Jovicich, Ludovico Minati, Lorenzo Pavesi

Sponsors: Brandy Brain Network Dynamics, Center for Mind/Brain Sciences, BackUp neuromorphic photonics and the brain, European Research Council
Speaker gender ratio: 3 women : 14 men (21%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 45%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyphrase (“network dynamics”) and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 5 pages of results using our python script.

NEURO2019

NEURO2019 (joint meeting of the 42nd Annual Meeting of the Japan Neuroscience Society and the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Neurochemistry)

Organizers: Yoshihiro Yoshihara and Hitoshi Hashimoto
Sponsors: see here
Invited speaker gender ratio: 8 Women : 21 Men (28%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 31%

*Method of estimation: previously established base rate of women faculty in neuroscience.

April 2019 Journal Watch

Methods:

See our January 2018 Journal Watch post for details on methods.

Base rates:

First authors are more likely to be graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Using our calculations based on registration for the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, 50% of graduate students and postdocs in neuroscience are women.

For last or sole authors we take the base rate to be 31%,  the percentage of women faculty at the same meeting. We take the base rate for all authors to be the overall percentage of 43%.
