Four Kavli neuroscientists — Rafael Yuste, Ken Shepard, Liam Paninski and Darcy Peterka, from Columbia University — reflect on the major obstacles in brain research today and the remarkable new technologies that may soon overcome them.
Late last year, some of the nation’s top neuroscientists and tech innovators gathered in New York to talk shop at a Kavli Futures Symposium. By the end of the event, the future of neurotechnology never looked so bright.
Neuroscience is in the midst of a technological leap that is enabling researchers to study the brain in unprecedented detail. With the launch last month of the NeuroTechnology Center, Columbia University has officially joined the neurotechnology race.
Leaders from the U.S. BRAIN Initiative, Europe’s Human Brain Project and Japan’s Brain/MINDS discuss their ambitious projects, which are aimed at nothing less than transforming our understanding of the human brain.
A White House BRAIN Conference highlights new commitments to the BRAIN Initiative and explores how the Initiative can continue to advance neuroscience research and its application on the treatment of brain disorders.
KIBS researchers aim to crack the code of the mammalian brain, starting with one of its memory networks. Neuroscientist Attila Losonczy discusses the ambitious plan and why it has received the support of President Obama’s BRAIN Initiative.
