National Science Foundation BRAIN Workshop Report e-Published on IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering
Date:10/1/2013

t be met in order to successfully map the living human brain: high spatiotemporal resolution neuroimaging, perturbation-based neuroimaging, and neuroimaging in naturalistic environments. The report highlights that each of these grand challenges requires groundbreaking discoveries, enabling technologies, appropriate knowledge transfer, and multi- and trans-disciplinary education and training for success.

Starting with $100 million in FY 2014 from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the BRAIN Initiative aims to accelerate the development and application of new technologies that will provide deeper understanding of how the brain records, processes, uses, stores, and retrieves vast quantities of information, and shed light on the complex links between brain function and behavior.

Workshop Chair and lead author of the report, Dr. Bin He remarked, “This is a truly exciting time in the fields of neuroscience and neuroengineering, as we embark on what promises to be an era of inspiring discovery and understanding of how the living human brain works. We know that through innovative neurotechnology, we can map the brain and unlock some of its most confounding mysteries – which, one day, we expect will help us to treat, cure, and even prevent disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, depression, and traumatic brain injury.” Dr. He, who is also a past president of EMBS, an IEEE Fellow, and a professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine at the University of Minnesota, continued, “We hope this report, which represents the hard work of a group of experts from all around the country, would play a role in assisting NSF and the scientific community to identify major challenges we are facing in order to accomplish the goal of BRA
