    @sarah-c-7 Sarah C Hello! I'm fascinated by the human body and brain and would love to help teach (and learn) on socratic. I've already got to work answering psychology questions, and the anatomy questions about the brain are always my favourite - so an area just for the brain is a dream come true! 
    I think that neuroscience is a brilliant subject to have on socratic as it is a place full of people who want to use their own brains. I would love to help get this subject set up:)

    @sardar-harpreet-singh-kalsi hsk Hi! i have had neuroscience as one of my subject in my postgraduation where we studied basics of neuroscience and behavioral studies.

    Neuroscience is really an amazing subject where you are trying to decipher the code behind the most amazing organ of human body, THE BRAIN. there are various mysteries which have started to be deciphered by scientist and should be shared here on Socratic.

    @funny-mouse Sam S. I'll try telling my friends. But I'm not sure how well that would work out. I'm really the only one in my group with the passion for Neuroscience.

    @becca Becca M. @Sam S. aw! Well, on the one hand I can introduce you to some awesome Socratic people. But for other Neuro founders, I was wondering if you know anyone outside of Socratic who'd want to help out. You can post on Facebook or Reddit or wherever to see if anyone you know might be interested!

    @becca Becca M. Hi @funny-mouse! So very excited you're on board on open up neuroscience :) I think you're going to be an amazing founder! The name of the game now is to get 7 other founders signed up, so we can start building. Do you know anyone else who might be great to help out?

    @funny-mouse Sam S. Hey guys! I'm Sam and I love Neuroscience! I took a week of Behavioral Neuroscience classes at Western Washington University and a week of Psychology at Washington State University a few years ago. I've been hooked ever since. Neuroscience should be on Socratic because it's absolutely fascinating. And, whether your future/current career is in it or not, it's ALWAYS cool to learn new things.

How are new subjects launched?

By the community! (With support from the Socratic team.) To launch a subject on Socratic, you need a founding team of eight people who are committed to building and supporting the subject through its critical early days.

Once eight founders have signed up, you will form a team that collaborates to grow and nurture the subject using a live version of the site. You will write the subject's first featured answers and recruit other contributors. Most important, you will lead by example by participating often and encouraging others to do the same.

Once the founding team has built a foundation of helpful answers and a healthy community of supporters, the subject will graduate, meaning it will join the ranks as a designated Socratic learning resource. We'll also design a beautiful subject badge to make it official!

Who can be a subject founder?

Anyone who knows a lot about Neuroscience can become a founder. Why? The Socratic community values passion, diversity of opinions, and commitment over credentials.

Alongside your knowledge, your passion to share and spread Neuroscience with students everywhere should be your driving force. This is what will help your subject succeed!

Why should I become a founder?
  • Be one of eight people building a shared resource that will reach more than a million students every month. Now that's legacy.
  • Connect and collaborate with brilliant people around the world who share your passion. Find your tribe.
  • Earn credibility and status, online and off. Add it to your resume! Founding a subject will keep you sharp, and can even help in your professional life.
  • Have fun. Building something you're proud of feels pretty darn good.
When I sign up to be a founder, what am I committing to? I'm not sure I have time.

New subjects need a foundation of helpful answers and, most important, continuous participation from passionate folks. As a founder, you will:

  • Ensure that your founding team creates at least 20 featured answers that represent that very best in your subject
  • Participate often and encourage other team members, so that you meet your shared goal of high activity days (days on which 8 or more people contribute)

No matter who you are, life is busy and unpredictable. That's why there are no individual or time-based requirements for subject founders. You can contribute to your shared goals anytime, from anywhere - so long as you make an active effort to support the team and push the subject forward.

Can I invite friends to be founders?

If you know someone who would be a great founder for a new subject on Socratic, you can — and should! — invite that person by sharing the link to this page with them, and encouraging them to sign up.

Inviting a friend to join you on the founding team likely means working with someone you already respect, which'll help establish trust amongst the team early on. Trust = better outcomes and more fun.

I would love to see Neuroscience on Socratic! Can I get involved without becoming a founder?

Yes! To help get Neuroscience launched on Socratic, you can:

  • Recruit others (know a potential founder?) and spread the word (share links with interested friends or online groups you're part of)
  • Contribute early answers — anyone can write answers, even if you're not a founder
  • Ask some of the first questions (if you're studying this subject or want to learn about it)
  • Get to know the founders and chime in with support and encouragement
