MPFI and FIAS awarded .4 million grant to study brain activity

The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI), along with the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS), was recently awarded more than $1.4 million to support research regarding spontaneous brain activity in early development. The funds, provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in Germany, are part of a unique Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) grant that supports international research collaborations aimed at solving complex questions. MPFI Scientific Director David Fitzpatrick and Professor for Computational Neuroscience and Computational Vision at FIAS Matthias Kaschube’s research will collect and analyze large quantities of data in an effort to understand why certain activity occurs without stimulation in early development of the visual cortex. “One of the most exciting aspects of this research is…
