Researchers have genetically modified the entire family of GABAA receptor subtypes, which mediate inhibitory synaptic transmission in the brain, to make them controllable with pulses of light with high spatial, temporal, and biochemical precision.
Following the announcement of a Public-Private Partnership Program in early fall, NIH has released two funding opportunity announcements for small business concerns to develop the latest-generation implantable stimulating and/or recording devices for translational and clinical neuroscience…
NIH has issued additional Requests for Applications (RFAs) for the BRAIN Initiative that address critical components of the BRAIN 2025 Report due to their focus on tool development and mechanistic understanding of non-invasive neuromodulation techniques.
The program, part of NSF’s BRAIN Initiative efforts, will open new opportunities to understand complex aspects of neural and cognitive systems through integrative multidisciplinary approaches
A new White House Grand Challenge seeks to develop nanotechnology-based solutions to guide the future of computing.
NIH has re-issued three Requests for Applications (RFAs) for the BRAIN Initiative that address critical components of the BRAIN 2025 Report due to their focus on developing tools to analyze cells and circuits and technologies for large-scale recording and modulation.
Genetic analysis of different populations of neural stem cells indicates that one group of cells—the outer radial glia—gives rise to the majority of neurons in the upper layers of the neocortex that are associated with higher-level information processing and thinking, suggesting that these…
Researchers have created an expandable, open-source anatomical atlas of the entire zebrafish brain, called the Z-Brain, and mapped onto it whole-brain activity occurring during multiple behaviors
In recent weeks, the NIH BRAIN Initiative released five new requests for applications (RFAs) related to human neuroscience research that range from the development of invasive stimulating and recording devices to investigating non-invasive imaging techniques.
Separate events on Wednesday, October 1 highlighted the awardees of the second round of NIH BRAIN Initiative grants and additional investments by the Kavli Foundation to support the BRAIN Initiative.
