The National Institutes of Health will fund more than 175 grants, totaling nearly $500 million, through the NIH’s Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative, part of a large effort among federal and non-federal partners to use knowledge about how the brain works to develop more effective therapies for neurological disorders.
The Allen Institute today announced six new Next Generation Leaders, members of a unique neuroscience advisory panel made up of early-career researchers. Now in its seventh year, the Next Generation Leaders Council advises neuroscience research efforts at the Allen Institute, namely the Allen Institute for Brain Science and the MindScope Program.
When neuroscientist Sébastien Tremblay set out to manipulate monkeys’ brains with light, colleagues had sobering advice: “It’s more difficult than it sounds.” Tremblay, who works in neuroscientist Michael Platt’s lab at the University of Pennsylvania, uses light to activate or silence precise groups of neurons and probe their role in brain function.
