Hi! The Brain Observatory continues to make headlines as we share our research with the public. We are the scientists who showed you a week-long brain dissection live on the web, we have created the largest microscopy images of the human brain, and our Digital Brain Library project has revolutionized the concept of brain banking and has changed the way many neuroscientists think. Our science is an art and we foster the arts in many different ways, from having poets in residence to inspiring theatrical plays. The Brain Observatory is the ultimate destination for the brain-curious! The reality is that behind this outstanding creative potential are day-to-day operations that cost money, and in the current financial climate we cannot count on governmental funding to support our work completely. But with your help, we can climb the fiscal cliff! Our website has about 2,000 single visitors per month, and if everyone donated $10, we would be in good shape. Donate now, $10, $50, $100, $1000; any gift (tax deductible), big or small will help. Look at our donation page for details on how we would use your money. Thank you for your support!
