There is a wealth of information about neuroscience online. Here are some websites selected by the BNA Council and Committee which we believe provide good sources of information on the brain and nervous system, in both health and disease.
BrainConnection.com is dedicated to providing accessible, high-quality information about how the brain works and how people learn. Many discoveries are being made in areas that relate to the human brain, including language, memory, behavior, and aging, as well as illness and injury. Our brain experts believe that access to this information can provide practical tools for teaching and learning as well as valuable insights into almost every aspect of our daily lives. BrainConnection.com is owned by Posit Science, makers of BrainHQ. To learn more about Posit Science and BrainHQ
The Allen Institute for Brain Science, founded in 2003 by philanthropist Paul G. Allen, is dedicated to understanding how the human brain works in health and disease. As part of a 10-year plan launched in March 2012 to understand the neural code—how activity in the brain's cortex leads to perception, decision making, and ultimately action—the Allen Institute has created a set of large-scale programs to understand the fundamentals of the cortex. We will be focusing our understanding through simultaneous study of the brain's components, computation and cognition.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
F1OOO Research is an Open Research publishing platform offering immediate publication of articles and other research outputs with no editorial bias. All articles benefit from transparent peer review and the inclusion of all source data.
The human brain is the most complex biological structure in the known universe. Its nearly 100 billion nerve cells power all of our thoughts, perceptions, memories, emotions, and actions. It’s what inspires us to build cities and compels us to gaze at the stars. That sense of wonder drives BrainFacts.org. We are a public information initiative of The Kavli Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience – global nonprofit organizations dedicated to advancing brain research
Powered by the global neuroscience community and overseen by an editorial board of leading neuroscientists from around the world, BrainFacts.org shares the stories of scientific discovery and the knowledge they reveal. Unraveling the mysteries of the brain has the potential to impact every aspect of human experience and civilization. Join us as we explore the universe between our ears. Because when you know your brain, you know yourself.
