White House Neuroscience Initiative

In case you missed it, the White House announced this week their new initiative to fund research focusing on neuroscience innovation.

“The BRAIN Initiative — short for Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies — builds on the President’s State of the Union call for historic investments in research and development to fuel the innovation, job creation, and economic growth that together create a thriving middle class.” BRAIN Initiative Challenges Researchers to Unlock Mysteries of Human Mind http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/04/02/brain-initiative-challenges-researchers-unlock-mysteries-human-mind

Here is a brief introduction to the project from NIH Director, Francis Crick.
