Use of Color in Presentation Materials

Approximately 5% of Japanese men (3 million people) and 8% of Caucasian men have a specific type of vision that makes it difficult to distinguish between colors in a particular range, including red and green. In light of this, you are requested to take the following points into account when preparing presentation materials.

  1. Images of two-color staining or DNA chips should be displayed in green and magenta, not in green and red.
  2. Three or more stains should be displayed not only as composites containing all three colors but also with the two most important colors shown alone in green and magenta. (Alternatively, images of each channel can be displayed separately.)
  3. In graphs and explanatory figures, it is extremely difficult to match colors shown in two separate places. For this reason, do not use only color-coded descriptions or legends for different items but also write them directly into figures. Do not differentiate between items by using different colors, but rather with different types of lines, shapes/symbols, or various types of hatching.
  4. On a dark background, please use white, yellow, or orange letters rather than thin, red or blue ones as much as possible.

COI (Conflict of Interest) Declaration

Industry-academic collaborative neuroscience research entails benefits to society (public interest) from the fruits of disseminating academic and ethical responsibility, as well as money, status, rights, and other benefits (private interest) acquired attendant on industry-academic collaboration. When these two types of benefits are in conflict within an individual researcher, it is called a “conflict of interest." The occurrence of a conflict of interest is unavoidable in today's complex social activities, and legal restrictions apply to certain activities.
The first author who submits an abstract must register her/his disclosure information for potential conflicts of interest within one year before abstract submission. This registration process follows “Guidelines on a Conflict of Interest (COI)” set by Japan Neuroscience Society (disclosure requirement applies only to the first author). Please refer to the JNS page on the Online Abstract Submission system for details, and mark the boxes which match your status. Please place the information either at the top or on the last page of your slides, or the bottom of your poster.

COI Disclosure Sample Slides

You have no conflict of interest to disclose. You have conflicts of interest to disclose.
