About Flux

The Flux Society’s purpose is to advance the understanding of human brain development by serving as a forum for professional and student scientists, physicians, and educators to: exchange information and educate the next generation of developmental cognitive neuroscience researchers; make widely available scientific research findings on brain development; encourage translational research to clinical populations; promote public information by discussing implications on the fields of education, health, juvenile law, parenting, and mental health, and encourage further progress in the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience. The Flux Society was launched in 2014 by the Executive Committee (Beatriz Luna, Brad Schlagger, Silvia Bunge and Bruce McCandliss).

Flux: The Society for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience is registered as a non-profit corporation (Registration No. 4274168) under the law of the state of Pennsylvania as of 31 May 2014.

Flux Diversity Statement

The Flux Society is committed to upholding the principles of justice, diversity, equity and inclusivity in all of its activities. What does that mean for us? It means that these values are infused throughout all aspects of our Society. Flux is an international community of researchers studying brain and cognitive development from multiple perspectives and academic traditions. Our leadership and board of directors reflects our deep commitment to diversity and is composed of members of traditionally underrepresented groups from across the globe. We strive to ensure that our annual meetings showcase speakers from multiple backgrounds and identities across the range of career stages. We support a Diversity Working Group that actively engages with Flux members through affinity groups and workshops. We seek to champion research in developmental cognitive neuroscience which reflects the diversity of human experience in both our members and in the make-up of the populations investigated. We believe that diverse representation at all levels enhances the quality of the science we conduct. We value and honor the unique contributions that members of different ages, abilities, cultures, ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, languages, nationalities, races, religions, sexual orientations and socioeconomic status bring to the Society. As such, we do not tolerate any form of discrimination or harrasment at our events.
