Videocasts will be available for the open sessions of two upcoming BRAIN Initiative workshops on August 24 and September 21, 2018.

As mentioned earlier, the ACD (Advisory Committee to the NIH Director) BRAIN Initiative Working Group 2.0, co-chaired by Dr. Catherine Dulac (Harvard University) and Dr. John Maunsell (University of Chicago) is holding a series of public, cross-country workshops to solicit input and expert consultations from leaders in the field, as well as to hear from stakeholders in the scientific community and the general public.

The first workshop, scheduled to take place in Boston, Massachusetts, on Friday, August 24th, 2018, will broadly address human neuroscience through four sessions that will be videocast and open to the public. The workshop will include presentations and panel discussions by scientific speakers, broader discussion with the working group, and opportunities for public comment. The videocast may be accessed here. Due to a high volume of local community interest in this workshop, the venue for the general session has been changed. For more information and to register, visit: https://palladianpartners.cvent.com/BRAIN_ACDWG1.

The second workshop, scheduled to take place in Chicago, Illinois, on Friday, September 21st, 2018, will broadly address emerging opportunities, including sensitive molecular and cellular methods to circuit analysis, developing and disseminating new technologies, and revolutionizing circuit-to-behavior analyses. As with the first event, this workshop will include presentations and panel discussions by scientific speakers, broader discussion with the working group, and opportunities for public comment. The videocast may be accessed hereFor more information and to register, visit: https://palladianpartners.cvent.com/BRAIN_ACDWG2.
