As my story today pointed out, medical science has better luck acquiring diseased brains to study than it does normal brains. This is a problem because without normal brains to compare them to, neuroscientists have a harder time finding out exactly what is wrong with diseased brains.

So if you are interested in donating your brain, you can call the University of California, San Diego’s Brain Observatory, which coordinates with several other UCSD institutions, including the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and the Body Donation Program.

You can reach Jacopo Annese, The Brain Observatory’s director, at 858.822.4465.
