NIH Website Highlights New BRAIN Initiative

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched a new website to serve as an information hub for the federal government’s new Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative. Launched by the Obama Administration earlier this year, BRAIN activities include developing innovative new technologies that enable scientists to create a dynamic picture of brain function, leading to new ways to treat, cure and prevent brain disorders. The new NIH website features updates and posts from the co-chairs of the initiative’s Advisory Committee Working Group, and allows for user feedback and comments.
