Image of the Day: BRAIN initiative

The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (that's "BRAIN") Initiative is about to spend $40 million from the National Institutes of Health on neuroscience research. On what? Well, they've just now decided:

  1. Generate a Census of Cell Types
  2. Create Structural Maps of the Brain
  3. Develop New Large‐Scale Network Recording Capabilities
  4. Develop a Suite of Toolsfor Circuit Manipulation
  5. Link Neuronal Activity to Behavior
  6. Integrate Theory, Modeling, Statistics, and Computation with Experimentation
  7. Delineate Mechanisms Underlying Human Imaging Technologies
  8. Create Mechanisms to Enable Collection of Human Data
  9. Disseminate Knowledge and Training

Our vote for #10 is "more pretty pictures."
