    Brain donation

    If you have a brain disorder and are interested in donating your brain to science after your death, there are resources where you can find out more about the process and apply. The multiple sclerosis project, NARCOMS, has listed them in the latest issue of NARCOMS Now. I posted this in the MS forum but people in other forums might be interested as well.

    Many years ago I donated my entire body to a hospital/university. And I paid a local funeral home to delivery my body there.

      Thank you for noticing this post. There was a discussion of brain donation some time ago on the MS forum but I can't recall whether anyone came up with any information on ways to apply in order to make this possible. You've really been diligent about making plans. I haven't done a thing about donating any part of me anywhere but hope to get on with it now that this current list has been made available, thanks to NARCOMS.
