UCI Brain Circuit  | November E-newsletter

Dear colleagues,

UCI Brain has launched an ‘Ask an Expert’ series to showcase some of the premium features of Dimensions. Each month, we will feature a video answering a question posed by the UCI community. We know your time is limited, so we will keep these videos under seven minutes.

For those who haven’t used Dimensions, it is a comprehensive data platform with features including the ability to cross-access research publications, awarded grants, patents, clinical trials, and policy documents. UCI Brain is offering all those involved in brain-related research a premium subscription to this platform. Watch our tutorial on accessing Dimensions to learn more.

Submit your question to brain@uci.edu for a chance to be featured in this series.
