See inside your own brain
Participate in neuroscience and mental health research
Learn about your mind and body
Welcome! We are a group of Columbia University neuroscientists passionate about enabling creative and unconventional scientific research and helping everyone learn from psychology and neuroscience discoveries. We want to help you to use science to improve your life and give you opportunities to contribute to research. Our flagship service, just recently released, is a tool to help you upload a brain scan and get a beautiful, interactive, 3D visualization of your own brain. If you don’t have a brain scan, we’ll help you find a standalone imaging center where you can obtain one at an affordable rate or a research study you can participate in to get one for free. If you already have a brain scan, you can create an account, participate in our research study (about 10 minutes), and explore your brain with our 3D visualization tool. Below you can also leave your email for updates. But that's not all! We have a lot of ideas about where to go from here, and we want to know what’s important to you, so we’re opening the floor. Tell us what you think we should work on next, and if you like, sign up to get updates on our projects.
How to get started with MBaM
This two and half minute video walks you through the basic steps involved in completing our online study and creating your 3D brain visualization. Completing the study takes about 10 minutes if you have ready access to your scans on CD or USB drive. If your scans are in a patient portal, you will need to first download them to a folder in your computer.
