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!

Our Blog Now On Line!


Here it is, The Brain from Top to Bottom blog. And it’s hard to miss, because we’ve built it right into the web site’s home page. Why? Because for us, the blog and the site are now inseparable, interactive parts of a whole, each referring you to the other for more information.

As you can see from the first post above, each week we will be providing a summary of a recent scientific study in the vast field of cognitive neuroscience. In that sense, this blog is just a series of posts like any other. But each summary will also include clickable text links to pages in The Brain from Top to Bottom that we have selected specifically to help you understand the study in question. Thus this blog provides yet another way of accessing the web site’s encyclopedic content. (more…)
