Last year, The BRAIN Initiative® proposed a challenge for students to describe their perspectives on the ethics and implications of emerging neurotechnologies. This month, Drs. John Ngai and Walter Koroshetz announced the winners live via an online broadcast.
In January, members of the NIH BRAIN Initiative Neuroethics Working Group (NEWG) and Multi-Council Working Group (MCWG) met virtually to discuss emerging ethics themes in BRAIN and ongoing efforts to promote and enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion in neuroscience.
Dr. Beckel-Mitchener has been serving as acting deputy director of the BRAIN Initiative alongside Dr. John Ngai, who was named BRAIN Initiative director in January 2020.
This next workshop series of 2021 will bring together non-invasive neuroimaging tool developers, neuroscientists, engineers, and industry partners to discuss emerging tools and pathways for disseminating current imaging technologies. Please join us on Feb.
In the second of several planned for 2021, these workshops – co-hosted by the NIH BRAIN Initiative and the NIH Blueprint – will bring together experts to explore emerging questions on the upcoming ramp-up of the NIH BRAIN Initiative’s cell census and atlas-ing efforts. Please join us on Feb.
The first of many planned for 2021, these workshops – co-hosted by the NIH BRAIN Initiative and Department of Energy (DOE) – will bring together experts to discuss neural circuit mapping, connectomics, and challenges in whole-brain mapping. Please join us on Feb.
Please join us for two virtual NIH BRAIN Initiative meetings on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 and Wednesday, January 27, 2021. Videocast will be available for the BRAIN Neuroethics Working Group meeting and for the open session of the BRAIN Multi-Council Working Group meeting.
The BRAIN Initiative Alliance (BIA) website now offers a section for Toolmakers’ Resources, including the first issue of a new Toolmakers Newsletter, which features information about BRAIN Initiative tools, tech, and theories.
