On December 1st 2021 a new student society was started, Malta Neurological Students’ Society (MNSS). The organization aims to enhance the student experience by increasing knowledge about the fascinating wonder that is the brain, while also communicating local and international neuro-related research.
This is especially important in Malta where neurological research makes up a significant proportion of the University’s scientific research output. With this in mind, MNSS was created to further generate interest in this field by helping students understand core concepts, while increasing awareness about neurological disorders with the general public.
MNSS aims to disseminate information through regular posts on various aspects of the brain such as its normal functioning and changes during disease, on their social media platforms. These posts will be targeted towards both the public as well as students, to ensure everyone can learn while fulfilling the society’s primary goals.
The organization also aims to host events in the foreseeable future to continue to grow as an organization as well as to achieve the previous aims which will be something to look out for. Ultimately, as the society develops, MNSS aims to be a fundamental resource to students at various stages of their education to get a better understanding and skills in the inner workings of the world’s most complicated system.
