The Society for Neuroscience has recently announced it will build a new brain information website, BrainFacts.org. This public information initiative of The Kavli Foundation, The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience (SfN) will launch in spring 2012.
This website will provide a wealth of information, including facts about brain diseases and disorders, brain research, and strategies to promote brain health and wellness.æ
SfN is in the crucial research phase for the site and is reaching out to those affected by brain and nervous system diseases and disorders. Specifically they are looking for participants for in-person focus groups in Washington (June 16), Chicago (June 21), and Los Angeles (June 23). The focus groups will be 1.5 hours long and a stipend is paid.
Family members, friends, and caregivers are the target audiences not the patients or persons affected.æ
