Information about the brain and nervous system

Here's some excellent FREE online resources for anyone interested in the brain and neuroscience. The websites and links provided here are a combination of resources selected by the BNA Council and Committee and some of our own favourite neuroscience sites. While this list is by no means complete (please let us know if you discover something exceptional that should be added), they provide some valuable sources of information on the brain, nervous system and the emerging field of social neuroscience (including neuroleadership, neurosafety, neuromarketing, etc). 

BrainFacts.Org Website

This superb website is an authoritative source of information about the brain and nervous system for the public. Its purpose is to share what neuroscientists know, explore what they don’t yet know fully, and discuss how today’s research advances understanding.  An initiative of The Kavli Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience - all leading global nonprofit organisations working to advance brain research - the editorial board is made up of leading neuroscientists from around the world, all the site’s content is reviewed by scientists for accuracy, and information is regularly checked and updated. provides information about the field’s understanding of causes, symptoms, and outcomes of brain disorders. It is not intended to give specific medical or other advice to patients. Visitors interested in medical advice should consult with a physician. Click HERE...

The Brain Domain: A Community Engagement Project 

Set up by BNA members from Cardiff University, The Brain Domain’s primary objectives are to engage the interested public with neuroscience and to develop science communication skills for early career scientists in a peer-driven setting. Articles posted on The Brain Domain website come in all shapes and sizes, from quirky introductions on neuroscience topics to explorations of recent news to patient perspectives.

The British Neuroscience Association

The British Neuroscience Association (BNA) is the largest society in the UK representing all aspects of neuroscience in health and disease, from the lab to the clinic. Their collaborative fellowship embraces academia, industry, medical charities and funding agencies, bringing together people from different disciplines who wouldn't otherwise talk to each other. The BNA's website provides an wealth of information about the latest neuroscientific research and findings, as well as some valuable links to other sites and sources. Click HERE...

Neuroscience Crash Course 

Crash Course is a series of free, high-quality educational videos used by teachers, students, and anyone else interested in the wide variety of topics covered. Neuroscience topics have been covered in several different Crash Courses. Here, you can find a playlist with selected neuroscience videos, all well explained and engaging. Click HERE...

Neuroscience News

Neuroscience News is an excellent source of neuroscientific information dedicated strictly to neuroscience research news. The site is an independent science news website focusing mainly on neuroscience and other cognitive sciences. The authors scour news sources from universities, labs, news agencies, scientists, science publishers and other science departments and they post full articles, releases, abstracts, and sometimes full research journal papers on the site.
