History of Neuroscience


Global Brain Museum (GBM)

The Global Brain Museum 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 geographies.

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 and archives, even historic laboratories, 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, please go to 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).
