On the BRAIN “dream team”

In a recent article, Professor Eve Marder talked to the Boston Globe about the “BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies)” initiative recently announced by President Obama. Marder is a member of the advisory committee to the NIH director on the initiative. Are the scientific minds behind the initiative “living on the moon” or will this be the key step in developing new tools for understanding big neural networks in vivo? Only time will tell.
