After providing all the funding for The Brain from Top to Bottom for over 10 years, the CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction informed us that because of budget cuts, they were going to be forced to stop sponsoring us as of March 31st, 2013.
We have approached a number of organizations, all of which have recognized the value of our work. But we have not managed to find the funding we need. We must therefore ask our readers for donations so that we can continue updating and adding new content to The Brain for Top to Bottom web site and blog.
Please, rest assured that we are doing our utmost to continue our mission of providing the general public with the best possible information about the brain and neuroscience in the original spirit of the Internet: the desire to share information free of charge and with no adverstising.
Whether your support is moral, financial, or both, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

In the first two weeks of the fundraising campaign that we began in April 2013, we raised nearly $2 500. In the next four months (May to August), we have raised another $1 750, and in the last four months (September to December), another $1 800, for a total of about $6 000. We want to say many thanks again to all of you who have contributed.
