Strong Points: Information aimed at scientists and general public
Weak Points: Some Harvard-specific resources


The website for the Harvard Brain Science Initiative (HBI) offers something for everyone, with a number of resources for the community beyond Harvard. Whether you’re a neuroscientist by training, simply curious to learn more about the field, or interested in supporting neuroscience research, you’ll enjoy exploring this visually engaging and informative site. Information is organized into eight sections that are prominently displayed on the home page. These sections include recent neuroscience news from HBI scientists, information about HBI grants and Institute-sponsored programs, and a neat educational resource called the “brain tour.” The brain tour offers a collection of videos, links to other web resources, and brief informational blurbs related to diverse topics in the field. For Boston-area residents, the website also includes information about upcoming events, including many that are open to the general community.
