Since its launch in 2013, numerous exciting developments in neurotechnology and our understanding of the brain have been made by scientists across the United States and globe.
This year’s PECASE (Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers) recipients include researchers and scientific administrators who are contributing to the BRAIN Initiative.
In the run up to the New Year, numerous magazines, journals, and news outlets looked back over the scientific achievements of 2018 and looked ahead to what we can expect from science and technology in 2019.
The BRAIN Initiative has grown over the past 5 years. It will continue to build upon the public-private partnerships, revolutionary technology development, and new knowledge that have emerged, so that we can continue to map the future of brain health.
A group of scientists and funders reflect on what the BRAIN Initiative has already achieved and how it is evolving
Developing wiring diagrams ranging in scale from the individual synapse to the whole brain is a high priority for the BRAIN Initiative — a research effort to catalyze and speed advances in neuroscience by deploying cutting-edge computer science, physics, biology, and chemistry to develop transformative new tools.
