M for international neuroscience ‘dream team’

ANN ARBOR–A “dream team” of experts in sensors, electronics, data analysis and neuroscience has been awarded a $5 million grant to help unravel the mysteries of the brain and cross-train an international group of neuroscientists and engineers. The University of Michigan leads the project, funded by the National Science Foundation, to stimulate and sense brain activity at the single-neuron level and reconstruct neural circuits with computer simulations. “The goal of all of this is better health care,” said Kensall Wise, the William Gould Dow Distinguished University Professor Emeritus and a co-leader of the project. “By bringing together people with different approaches and expertise, the result could be a quantum leap forward in neuroscience and our understanding of the brain.” The advances in knowledge and neural implant technology could lead to…
