In April 2013, President Obama unveiled the "BRAIN" Initiative - a
bold new research effort to support the development and application of
innovative technologies that can create a dynamic understanding of brain
function. It aims to help researchers uncover the mysteries of brain disorders,
such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, depression, PTSD, and traumatic
brain injury (TBI). CBS scientists have been among the awardees of the first
set of grants funded by the BRAIN Initiative.
