Members of the NIH BRAIN Initiative Neuroethics Working Group discuss the importance of neuroethics and neuroethical implications of BRAIN tools and technologies.
From studying the octopus’s brain to considering important neuroethical questions, the BIA engaged with the public (both in person and virtually) through various 2019 Brain Awareness Week activities.
As part of Women’s History Month, we highlight four inspiring female scientists and their exciting, innovative BRAIN-funded research.
Contributions of the basal ganglia to speech production … High-speed volumetric microscopy of freely-moving Drosophila larvae … Identifying functional neuron subclasses with specificity …
This unprecedented view is made possible by three-photon microscopy, a low-energy imaging approach that is allowing us to peer deeply within the brains of living creatures without damaging brain cells.
Building better artificial intelligence may take more than human intelligence. It may require some living neurons, but in this case, from rats.
The octopus brain may not resemble a human’s in the least, but its nervous system has evolved to solve many of the same problems as our brains do
