The BRAIN initiative

2013-04-06

The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies initiative has been officially unveiled on April 2, 2013 by the President Obama. There had been quite excitement and interrogations in the few weeks before as the President had mentioned a large-scale research project about the brain in his State of the Union. Very few details were given before the official announcement, and it was reported that this would be a decade-long, multi-billion dollars project seeking to map the (eventually human) brain's activity by recording every single spike from every single neuron. When presented like that, this project's goals did not seem more realistic than the EU-funded Human Brain Project which aims at simulating the human brain at all spatiotemporal levels within ten years.
