Today at the White House, President Obama unveiled the “BRAIN” Initiative—a bold new research effort to revolutionize our understanding of the human mind and uncover new ways to treat, prevent, and cure brain disorders like Alzheimer’s, schizophrenia, autism, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury.
What an exciting day for science and innovation in the United States!
I was thrilled to be present at the White House this morning, as President
Barack Obama announced a pioneering project to explore the complex
workings of the human brain: the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative
Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. April 2, 2013.
This is the time of March Madness, Daylight Savings Time, and what
Emily Dickinson famously called the “month of expectation.” March is
also Brain Awareness Month, an annual celebration with school visits,
community lectures, and lab tours to introduce the public to the mind-blowing
world of neuroscience. March 11, 2013.
Ever wonder what is it that makes you, you? Depending on whom you ask,
there are a lot of different answers, but these days some of the world’s
top neuroscientists might say: “You are your connectome.”
