Have you ever wondered how to donate your brain for research after your death? It's a LOT of paperwork! But this is an exciting era in brain research and your brain could be part of it. Disordered and non-disordered brains of all ages over 18 are needed! BRAAAAIIIINNNNSSSS...

You could help humanity understand the brain with your donation!

What happens to my brain after donation?

 Following brain donation, a brain autopsy is performed to confirm clinical diagnosis. Typically, the whole brain is removed and prepared for analysis and future research. The NeuroBioBank does not return any specific research findings to the next-of-kin or family members of donors.

Can I donate my brain to science fiction like Lucy Liu in Futurama?
