The Search for Secrets of the Human Brain

Posted by Peter Rudin on 8. November 2019 in News

Large-scale national research projects hope to reveal how the brain learns, how it controls behavior and how it goes wrong.

Along with the goal of describing in detail just how the brain works at various levels, from the cellular to the behavioral, the hope is that these projects will lead to new ways to treat brain diseases and mental-health conditions, as well as advance artificial-intelligence (AI) technologies.

Investors are providing the projects with billions of dollars in new funding, creating career opportunities for not only neuroscientists but also physicists, mathematicians, chemists, materials scientists and medical specialists.
