The Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center performs ongoing post-mortem research on schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. They’re seeking brain tissue donations from people who have those mental illnesses, as well as donations of normal brains from people who are related to them.

They accept donations from the US but also internationally. Within the US call 1-800-272-4622, otherwise request a brochue on how to make a donation. Does not conflict with religious faiths, as they’ll explain. Talk to your family and consider contributing to important neuroanatomical research in search of new treatments and a cure.
