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 from 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!

Bruno Dubuc, Patrick Robert, Denis Paquet, and Al Daigen

Blog posts in French in December 2017 (English posts return in January 2018)

Al Daigen, who has translated all the of content for The Brain from Top to Bottom from French into English and who continues to translate selected posts from this website’s blog, will be taking a well earned vacation in December 2017. Since my English is not up to his high standards, I’m not going to try to replace him. But to make sure you don’t have to go too long without hearing from me, I want to let those of you who can read French know about 14 posts based on 14 lectures on embodied cognition that I gave last fall at the Université du Québec à Montréal and that I think you will enjoy. Unfortunately, the rest of you will either have to wait until Al’s translations of recent posts begin appearing here again on January 8, 2018, or try your luck with Google Translate, which has improved a fair bit in recent years, thanks to “deep learning” technology.
