BRAIN 2025 RECOMMENDATION:
Identifying fundamental principles: Produce conceptual foundations for understanding the biological basis of mental processes through development of new theoretical and data analysis tools.
From BRAIN Initiative to the brain: Integrate new technological and conceptual approaches produced in Goals #1-6 to discover how dynamic patterns of neural activity are transformed into cognition, emotion, perception, and action in health and disease.
The brain in action: Produce a dynamic picture of the functioning brain by developing and applying improved methods for large-scale monitoring of neural activity.
Demonstrating causality: Link brain activity to behavior with precise interventional tools that change neural circuit dynamics
Discovering diversity: Identify and provide experimental access to the different brain cell types to determine their roles in health and disease.
Maps at multiple scales: Generate circuit diagrams that vary in resolution from synapses to the whole brain.
Advancing human neuroscience: Develop innovative technologies to understand the human brain and treat its disorders; create and support integrated human brain research networks.
