The Human Neocortical Neurosolver (HNN) is a new user-friendly software package for circuit level interpretation of human EEG/MEG data. The foundation of HNN is a computational neural model that simulates the electrical activity of the neocortical cells and circuits that generate the primary electrical currents underlying EEG/MEG recordings. HNN is a free open source package that was designed for researchers and clinicians, without computational neural modeling experience, to develop and test hypothesis on the circuit origin of their data.

Rockefeller University neuroscientist Cori Bargmann, Ph.D., discusses the promise of the BRAIN Initiative to usher in a "new era of exploration" at a press conference announcing the first wave of awards on September 30, 2014. 

Researchers from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute use high-speed light-sheet microscopy to image almost all neurons in the intact larval zebrafish brain at single-cell resolution, capturing activity in the entire brain once every 1.3 s. Source: Nature.

The American Brain Coalition and NIH teamed up to host a BRAIN Initiative webinar for the patient advocacy community featuring Drs. Walter Koroshetz (Director, NINDS) and Joshua Gordon (Director, NIMH).

The objective of the BRAIN Initiative Advanced Postdoctoral Career Transition Award to Promote Diversity (K99/R00) is to enhance biomedical research workforce diversity and foster a strong cohort of new, highly skilled and well trained, NIH-supported, independent investigators from diverse backgrounds working in research areas supported by the BRAIN Initiative, as highlighted in BRAIN 2025: A Scientific Vision. This webinar is intended to assist participants in putting together their application.

This webinar will take you through the process of putting together an application for the NIH Blueprint Diversity Specialized Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Advancement in Neuroscience (D-SPAN) Award. The webinar will go through each part of the application, including eligibility, specific aims and research strategy, sponsor and co-sponsor information, letters of reference and support, and the certification letter. The second half of the webinar will be a question and answer session for attendees. This webinar was held on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
