Women in BrainStim database
This database provides the details of female scientists working in the brain stimulation field, including their research interests and achievements. The database can be used to help conference organizers, journal editors, universities and other institutions to identify appropriately qualified female scientists to speak at conferences, join editorial boards, participate in advisory groups and on committees.
