Why is Neurological Research Important in Everyday Life The brain controls everything we do and think. It is the central engine of the body, the driving force. Yet, we are only starting to understand how it operates. While neurological research may not be as exhilarating as pioneering smartphone technology, it is essential to the quest for knowledge and treating diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or multiple sclerosis (MS), amongst others. Brain research (or neurological research as it is commonly referred to) is a general term for medical, scientific, and technological studies that improve our comprehension of how and why our brains function. These studies incorporate neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder, or Multiple Sclerosis; psychiatric disorders like anxiety or depression; sensory issues like hearing loss or (removed color) blindness; neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson’s disease or Huntington’s disease; and traumatic brain injuries. At BRF, we fund a broad spectrum of brain research programs through our Seed Grants and our annual Scientific Innovations Award. Funding is used to make extraordinary discoveries about the brain, from how it functions to the links between lifestyle and disorders and essential findings about medical treatment and how the brain responds to it. We thus rely on generous and charitable people to make donations so that we can continue to fund our researchers and the projects on which they so diligently work. You may ask how you can get involved with funding Neuroscience Research. There are several ways to support BRF in our work and continue funding essential research programs that will aid medical and academic practice in the future. Whether donating on our website or attending one of our events, you can be assured that the money raised by BRF goes directly to studies executed by researchers and institutes working on the most up-to-date neurological advances.
