Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative - Research & Training - National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative - Research & Training - National Institutes of Health (NIH)
 The NIH Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is part of a new US Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain. By accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies, researchers will be able to produce a revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain that, for the first time, shows how individual cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. Long desired by researchers seeking new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent brain disorders, this picture will fill major gaps in our current knowledge and provide unprecedented opportunities for exploring exactly how the brain enables the human body to record, process, utilize, store, and retrieve vast quantities of information, all at the speed of thought.
