patrons

$3
per month

Knowing Neurons is an award winning neuroscience education and outreach website, run by a team of young neuroscientists and enthusiastic contributors.


As scientists, we feel that we have a responsibility to communicate neuroscience in a way that's accurate (but not overly technical), easily comprehensible (without oversimplifying), and engaging (without needless exaggeration).

To that end, Knowing Neurons:


Our Core Team is constantly evolving and growing! You can read more about our group of writers, editors, and illustrators on our website's Team Page.


We believe in accessible and accurate science communication. As such, our content will always be free for curious minds to explore.

However, producing and expanding our neuroscience content costs both money and time. Currently, our Core Team and contributors all volunteer their time and resources for free, in order to make engaging and accessible brain-related resources for anyone to use.

Contributions from patrons like you would help us:
  • Keep the lights on for the site
  • Offer the possibility of paying future contributors for their time and effort
  • Potentially expand our project into different media (e.g. podcasts and videos)
  • And more!

In return, we'll give you a closer look into how we actually produce the range of neuroscience content we publish! If we hit our reward goals, we'll be able to make high-quality content more frequently for you to enjoy and share with other curious minds.

$3 of $25 per month
