Leaving your brain and spinal cord for research

This may be a little macabre for some but I was talking to a lady today who has heard that the MS Society researchers get plenty of brains and spinal cords of people with MS, but are short of brains without MS.

This lady has made the decision that when she dies, having no family to arrange a funeral she would like to donate her body for medical science/research.

She is keen that her brain and spinal cord be used in MS research.

Anyone any idea what arrangements she should make?
