How can I donate my brain for research?

How can I donate my brain for research?

There is a need for both injured and healthy brains in research. The National Institutes of Health NeuroBioBank coordinates with Brain Banks around the country to collect brain tissue to support important brain research. You can find more information on their website.

If you are interested in registering to become a brain donor, contact The Brain Donor Project. The Brain Donor Project works with the NIH NeuroBioBank. They can answer questions and assist in registering to participate in donations.
