Hippocampus Reader Survey 2019

It's hard to believe Hippocampus has been around for almost 10 years! Every few years, we like to check in with our readers to see how we're doing, learn more about how you interact with us, explore what you'd like to see, and more. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your honest opinions and your participation in this anonymous survey.
