The BRAIN Initiative photo and video contest is now open through Monday, April 15, 2024.  

The BRAIN Initiative has been funding ground-breaking neuroscience research since 2014. Many innovative tools, resources, insights on neural circuit function, and first-in-human trials have been made possible by BRAIN Initiative researchers over the past decade.  

As we prepare to mark our 10th Annual BRAIN Initiative Conference, we are excited once again to launch the yearly photo and video contest. This unique contest is an opportunity to showcase the stunning, colorful, and inspiring images captured by today's advances in neurotechnology. We’re excited to announce that this year’s contest is now open, and we can’t wait to see your creativity.

Help us showcase this intersection of art and science. Submit your beautiful photos and videos today!
