SCNLab stands for: Sleep, Cognition and Neuroimaging Laboratory.
We think that:
the color should be a type of dark blue that incite to SLEEP;
and the drawing of an ABSTRACT BRAIN (examples are attached below) might be a good component of the logo.
Since we are not a molecular lab designs with cell or test tube are not relevant, but we study the brain at the systems level (so picture of brain is fine, but cell and test tube not).
