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.
