The Brain Research through Advancing Innovation Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is part of a new focus aimed at "revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain." The hope is that this ambitious effort will allow researchers to "produce a revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain.” There are a range of federal partners involved, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the US Food and Drug Administration. Visitors can look over some basic FAQ areas, such as Why is this needed? and How will it work? to get started. The site also includes links to advisory group meetings, complete with minutes, and funding opportunities for scholars as well as scientific departments and institutes.
