Cal-BRAIN: The California Blueprint for Research to Advance Innovations in Neuroscience Act of 2014
The California Senate and Assembly have approved pilot funding for a California BRAIN Initiative effort, with an initial investment of $2 million for the first year. Cal-BRAIN would set up a state-wide research grant program for the development of new technologies to enable a brain activity map, with the goal of converging on a unified technology for carrying out large-scale brain mapping efforts. This capability will have substantial benefits for the diagnosis and treatment of virtually all brain disorders, and spawn new areas of technology and training.
