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


As scientists, we have a responsibility to communicate our work to all audiences in a way that is accurate without being dry, easy to understand without oversimplification, and exciting without exaggeration.

We started Knowing Neurons in 2012 with two main goals:
  1. To provide a platform for young neuroscientists to practice communicating their scientific research & ideas to a general public.
  2. To provide accurate & engaging educational content for anyone to explore the fascinating world of the brain and mind.
To that end, we publish articles that highlight recent advances in neuroscience and exciting new scientific technologies. We interview top neuroscientists in their field and review interesting books about the brain. To keep our articles approachable, we support all our content with useful visuals, easy-to-follow illustrations, and infographics, which teachers from all over the world use in their classrooms!


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 science communication, and our neuroscience content will always be free for curious minds to explore. Producing and expanding our neuroscience content, however, costs money and time. Currently, our Core Team and our contributors all volunteer their time and resources for free to make interesting and accessible neuroscience content.

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, and potentially help expand our project into different media (e.g. podcasts and videos).

In return, we'll give you a closer look into how we produce neuroscience content. 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.
