Open Ephys is a nonprofit organization supported by donations. Donations cover the cost of support personnel, hardware manufacturing, and maintaining this website.
[Open Ephys was founded in order to] promote tool-sharing among members of the worldwide systems neuroscience community. Open Ephys will support the development, distribution, and maintenance of open-source hardware and software for collecting and analyzing neuroscientific data. Special focus will be given to tools with expensive or inflexible commercial alternatives, and which serve the needs of a broad user base. Open Ephys strives to make it easier for investigators to share the tools they develop by establishing a centralized tool repository and by coordinating distributed support networks.
Donations must be made with a credit card. A receipt will be sent via email.
