Extract

A new federally funded “big science” project will probe the inner workings of the brain. The initiative, announced by President Obama in April, will be funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation.

The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) project will begin with $100 million in federal funding. Several private organizations are also contributing funds: the Allen Institute for Brain Science ($60 million annually), the Kavli Foundation ($4 million a year for 10 years), the Howard Hughes Medical Institute ($30 million annually), and the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences ($28 million). The Obama administration is seeking to recruit other partners as well.
