The Impact of Brain and Mind Research

Understanding the brain is a grand challenge of science, and in April 2013, President Obama announced the federal BRAIN Initiative, whose goal is to create dramatic improvements in our understanding of brain function and dysfunction. Modeled loosely on the Human Genome Project, this initiative will require the development of new technologies, models, and computational approaches.

With so much at stake, what role can CMU and Pittsburgh play in this initiative? 
This panel of experts will discuss
  • the opportunities and challenges posed by the BRAIN Initiative, including 
  • the potential of this work to bring about revolutionary changes in our understanding of the brain; 
  • in our ability to understand, diagnose and treat brain disorders; and 
  • in the development of models that mimic brain functions.
