Donate your brain to dementia research

I mentioned the project at Kings to donate our brains for dementia research some weeks ago and intended to give a notice about it.  I am unlikely to get to meeting tomorrow so thought it would be good idea to send a link and to ask if it can be put on our website.

The deal is you agree to donate your brain, you do some tests while you are alive, and then your brain can be used for research… whether you develop dementia or not.  Obviously having both healthy and less healthy brains is essential to understand this rising medical problem.

The scheme is compatible with giving your organs for transplant but not with giving your body to dissection (in London anyway.)
