Global Brain Museum


The Global Brain Museum (GBM) is an open, online, and constantly growing interactive resource that aims to preserve, share and educate people about our world neuroscientific heritage. The GBM database is populated by the global community for the global community and allows users to search for institutions and resources that preserve the history of brain research. Museums, archives, and libraries are all included, and people can filter institutions by keywords, categories, research fields, or geographic location.

If you are interested in contributing, it is easy to add an institution or resource you think should be included. Simply share a QR code provided on the GBM website or scan it yourself. Once scanned, you will find a link to a form that streamlines the inclusion and consent of your institution into the Global Brain Museum database. After review and approval, your input will become part of a growing community of brain history resources. Museums, labs, archives, correspondence collections, and equipment can be included. The more diverse the better.

With your help, the Global Brain Museum will provide the most comprehensive online collection of brain-related archives, objects, and resources in order to preserve our world neuroscientific heritage and the histories of the science and people who have created it. To find out more, visit the GBM website.

The Global Brain Museum is brought to you by IBRO and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), in collaboration with the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).
