The National Institutes of Health agree that engaging the brain-related
patient advocacy community is integral to the success of this initiative.
It is the hope of NIH that every American Brain Coalition (ABC) member will
have at least one member from their organization participate (if not
more) in what we hope is the first of a series of ways the ABC can help keep
the patient advocacy community informed and engaged around this exciting
initiative.

For those of you who are not familiar, the NIH Brain Research through
Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is part of a new
Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human
brain. By accelerating the development and application of innovative
technologies, researchers will be able to produce a revolutionary new
dynamic picture of the brain that, for the first time, shows how individual
cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. Long
desired by researchers seeking new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent
brain disorders, this picture will fill major gaps in our current knowledge
and provide unprecedented opportunities for exploring exactly how the brain
enables the human body to record, process, utilize, store, and retrieve vast
quantities of information, all at the speed of thought.
