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!

A Recent Update of our Fundraising Campaign

Well, the on-line donation system to let our readers help fund The Brain from Top to Bottom is still up and running. To learn more about why we have turned to you to help meet our budget, and how you can make a donation, please read the column to the right.

Here is a recent update of our fundraising campaign.

August 26, 2013

In the first two weeks of the fundraising campaign that we began in April 2013, we raised nearly $2 500. Since then, we have raised another $1 750, for a total of $4 250, and we want to say many thanks again to all of you who have contributed. Thanks to your generosity, we expect to be able to keep this web site operating and to keep adding new posts to the French and English blogs.

But to start producing new content on new topics for the site itself, we will have to have more funding. We are still making every effort to secure ongoing funding from major institutions, but that is a lengthy process, and we can’t be sure whether or when it will succeed. In the meantime, contributions from readers like you will continue to be the lifeblood for our efforts, and we hope that you will chip in as much as you can.
