If you need any help using any BrainGlobe software, the first point of call is the forum. Please ask any questions you may have on here, and we will do our best to answer them. Please tag your question with both brainglobe and the name of the tool you are using (e.g. cellfinder). Asking questions on the public forum allows others to benefit from the answers, and also allows users and developers of other, related, tools to contribute to the discussion.

If you would like to get in touch with the development team, e.g. to ask a question about contributing to BrainGlobe, or anything else that isn’t troubleshooting, please use the BrainGlobe Zulip chat.


If you think you have found a bug, please open an issue at the relevant repository on GitHub. If you’re not sure how to do this, feel free to report the issue on the forum, and we will raise an issue. If you don’t know what the correct repository is, please open it on the repository of the tool you’re using, and we can transfer it if necessary.

Feature requests#

If you have a feature request, please open an issue at the relevant repository. If you have a more general request (e.g., for a tool that doesn’t yet exist), please ask on the forum (it may be that another tool does what you need).


If you would like to contribute to the BrainGlobe Initiative, please get in touch with us using the BrainGlobe Zulip chat. We always welcome new Pull Requests, but please take a quick look at the developer guide first.

Other ways to get in touch#

While we prefer that all discussions about the project are carried out in public, there may be situations in which this is not possible. In these situations, please email the core developers.
