What we do

The Neurological Foundation funds vital research and on-going education of the next generation of neuroscientists and neurologists. Events are hosted around New Zealand sharing insights into the research our supporters have helped fund.

Getting the word out

In addition to funding research and education, the Neurological Foundation also works to raise public awareness for neurological disorders.

We host events all around New Zealand, sharing insights into the research our supporters have helped fund. The Neurological Foundation also publishes a quarterly magazine, Headlines.
