BrainWeb: Everything You Need to Know

brain-305774_1280It’s important to stay well-informed when it comes to neurological diseases and disorders, not only for those inflicted but also for their families, caregivers, and friends. While the internet provides us with a wealth of knowledge, oftentimes it can be difficult to decipher whether or not certain information is trustworthy.

In an effort to facilitate this awareness, the Dana Foundation has a section of its website that provides links to some of the best general neuroscience and health resources, all of which have been approved by a team of scientific advisors.

The site’s BrainWeb lists thirty-five familiar ailments—such as depression, autism, addiction, schizophrenia, stroke, etc.—and provides links for further information. Under these links, there is a list of Dana’s most recently published articles, also reviewed by a scientific advisor.

The Foundation works hard to keep the public up-to-date about promising research, organization contacts, and where to go for further support. However, the information provided in BrainWeb is not a substitute for medical advice; be sure to consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
