Unraveling how the human brain works and understanding what goes wrong in disorders like epilepsy, schizophrenia, autism, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease will revolutionize how they are treated, prevented and cured.  A bold research effort called the Brain Research through AdvancingInnovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative will be “transformative,” a grand challenge akin to the Human Genome Project. Scientists from the Brown Institute for Brain Science, including Dr. Steve Rasmussen, are on the cutting edge of this research at Brown’s new Neurotechnology Center and at the Providence VA Medical Center.
