About the Neural Correlate Society

The Neural Correlate Society (NCS) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that promotes scientific research into the neural correlates of perception and cognition. We seek to communicate these discoveries to the public, helping to increase medical advancement and overall awareness.

We serve a community of perception scientists, ophthalmologists, neurologists, and artists who use a variety of methods to help discover the underpinnings of illusory perception.

Our mission

We are committed to promoting public knowledge and medical translation of new discoveries related to the neural correlates of sensory and cognitive experience. That includes highlighting discoveries made by the world’s under-represented groups, and disseminating information worldwide on new perceptual and cognitive discoveries.

We host a variety of annual events that highlight important new discoveries to the public, including the Best Illusion of the YearSM Contest.
