Contributions: Support the National Resource for Aplysia

The National Resource for Aplysia provides the foundation for most studies dealing with memory, brain function and brain disease. By studying the primitive neurons of this simple animal, researchers are able to unlock clues to human brain function with studies which will allow researchers to delve into debilitating diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.


Your generous contribution to the National Resource for Aplysia goes towards our day-to-day operations that ensure that these animals are available for brain researchers across the world on a day's notice. Each study brings mankind one step closer to deeper understanding and ultimately a cure.
