The NIH BRAIN Initiative is a collaborative research effort that seeks to accelerate our understanding of the human brain and revolutionize our ability to understand, treat, and prevent brain disorders. One of the key aspects of this Initiative is to support human research studies that use advanced technologies to investigate the structure, function, and connectivity of the human brain. These studies range from developing new tools and methods for imaging and mapping brain activity, to investigating the neural basis of behavior and cognition, to developing innovative treatments for brain disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. By bringing together experts from a wide range of scientific fields, the NIH BRAIN Initiative offers a unique opportunity to address some of the most pressing questions in neuroscience and to pave the way for new discoveries and treatments in the years to come.
