NYC Neuromodulation 2020 Online Conference

NYC Neuromodulation 2020 Online Conference

Session: Updates on Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS): Applications and Mechanisms
Organizer: Marom Bikson (Session Chair)
Speaker gender ratio: 2 Women: 5 Men (29%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 33%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword tDCS OR transcranial direct current stimulation and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 4 pages of results using our python script. We left 2 names unclassified. The base rate is estimated to be 33%.

Speaker gender ratio: 4 women: 5 men (44%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 47%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword impulsivity AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 5 pages of results using our python script. We left 1 name unclassified. The base rate is estimated to be 47%.

G-Node Advanced Neural Data Analysis Course (ANDA 2020)

G-Node Advanced Neural Data Analysis Course (ANDA 2020)

Organizers: Sonja Grün, Martin Nawrot, and Thomas Wachtler
Sponsor: Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF)
Faculty gender ratio: 2 Women : 9 Men (18%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 29%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword (electrophysiology OR electrophysiological) AND analysis and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 50 pages of results using our python script. We left 29 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 28%-31%.

Cell Biology of Neurons and Circuits II

Cell Biology of Neurons and Circuits II

Organizers: Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Timothy Ryan
Invited participant gender ratio: 10 women : 23 men (30%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 34%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword cell AND biology AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 16 pages of results using our python script. We left 34 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 32%-39%.
