By accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies, researchers will be able to produce a revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain that, for the first time, shows how individual cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. Long desired by researchers seeking new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent brain disorders, this picture will fill major gaps in our current knowledge and provide unprecedented opportunities for exploring exactly how the brain enables the human body to record, process, utilize, store, and retrieve vast quantities of information, all at the speed of thought.Since the President’s announcement, the BRAIN Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the Director (ACD) has been swiftly moving forward to identify the scientific goals, timeline, and budget for this pioneering initiative.

Based on recommendations in the group’s interim report and the ACD’s subsequent endorsement, NIH announced its initial high-priority areas for NIH-funded BRAIN research in September, and, in December, called for applications to conduct $40 million in six different scientific areas. Today, the BRAIN Working Group presented its final report to the ACD, which accepted its recommendations. Not only will BRAIN revolutionize neuroscience, it will transform our efforts to help the millions of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, autism, epilepsy, schizophrenia, traumatic brain injury, and many other neurological disorders.EXECUTIVE SUMMARY * PREAMBLE.
