ACNS Virtual Survivor

The ECR Sub-Committee is proud to introduce . . .

ACNS Virtual Survivor

Want to be the sole survivor from the comfort of your own home? Now’s your chance! Celebrate the end of the first day of the 2021 ACNS conference with a bang and join us for cognitive neuroscience themed games.

We will divide players (“locked-aways”) into tribes . Each tribe will then compete in challenges designed to test your cognitive abilities (memory, executive function, quick thinking, fine motor skills) and creative thinking. The game is much more than just luck, you have to know how to work with your team in order to win! Prizes will be awarded for the winning tribe, and all players will walk away with some new networks.

Although this event is hosted by the ECR Sub-Committee, the event is open to everyone, not just ECR’s. You also do not have to be registered for the conference to attend this event; the more the merrier!
