A revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain by the BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies)
U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)
United States



«The Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative is part of a new Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain. By accelerating the development and application of innovative technologies, researchers will be able to produce a revolutionary new dynamic picture of the brain that, for the first time, shows how individual cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space. Long desired by researchers seeking new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent brain disorders, this picture will fill major gaps in our current knowledge and provide unprecedented opportunities for exploring exactly how the brain enables the human body to record, process, utilize, store, and retrieve vast quantities of information, all at the speed of thought.»

«From Innovation to Solution: SESAR is more than a conventional R&D project. It takes a concept and brings it through a development and validation process that prepares the solution for operational deployment. The method for validating solutions is referred to as the Release process. A Release comprises a selection of solutions that have been through a systematic validation process, reaching the stage in a concepts lifecycle where a proposed solution has been successfully tested and matured, and is thus ready for industrialisation.»
