National Chapter Networks
IYNA chapters generally center around schools, colleges, or communities, and comprised of relatively small groups of students. Each chapter has autonomy over their leadership and activities. Qualifications to become a chapter are very flexible: chapters just need to dedicate a substantial amount of time to neuroscience, so general science/biology/medicine clubs can also be eligible. For more information about chapters, see the IYNA Chapter Handbook.

LCNs are groups of chapters centered around a geographical region such as a city, township, or province. Often, LCNs will have a hub at a university or community center. LCNs provide the opportunity for events larger than those organized by individual chapters, such as meetups, fundraisers, organization of a Brain Bee chapter, or community outreach programs.
NCNs oversee LCNs and chapters and manage most of the IYNA's day-to-day operations in their respective countries. If your country does not currently have an NCN and you are interested in starting one, please contact us.
