Society for Neuroscience awarded $1.53 million to create BrainFacts.org
Date:2/16/2011

Washington, DC The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) has been awarded $1.53 million in funding over six years to create and maintain BrainFacts.org, a unique nonprofit online source for authoritative public information about the progress and promise of brain research. With joint founding partners The Kavli Foundation and The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, SfN will launch the Web site in late spring 2012 to communicate with the public, educators, and policymakers about revolutionary advances in understanding the brain and mind.

Given new ways to communicate ideas and information, and an explosion of discovery about brain function, BrainFacts.org creates an exciting opportunity for the field to engage more actively and effectively in dialogue with the public. We are grateful to The Kavli Foundation and The Gatsby Charitable Foundation for their support of this important initiative," Amara said.

Initially, material will draw on a wealth of scientifically reviewed public information and teaching tools developed or maintained by SfN and key content partners. As the site grows, BrainFacts.org will provide interactive information about basic and clinical brain research; facts about brain diseases and disorders; strategies to promote brain health and wellness; promising discoveries and key concepts such as neuroplasticity; and the growing role of neuroscience in societal discussions on health, education, ethics, law, and more. High-quality teaching tools for primary and secondary level educators will continue to be incorporated and the site will use multimedia and social media to foster learning and dialo
