Equal Access: Universal Design of Neuroscience Education and Research

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field, utilizing many disciplines such as mathematics, biology, engineering, computer science, chemistry, philosophy, psychology, and medicine. As increasing numbers of people with disabilities participate in academic opportunities and careers, the accessibility of courses, labs, electronic resources, events, internships, and other neuroscience activities and resources increases in importance. The goal is simply equal access; everyone who qualifies to participate in sponsored activities should be able to do so comfortably and efficiently.
