To spur the systematic, interdisciplinary research needed for a comprehensive, transformational understanding of the brain in action, NSF awarded a $4.4 million five-year grant to a team of mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists and neuroscientists from Rice University, the University of Houston, Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Notre Dame. The grant was part of NSF’s Next Generation Networks for Neuroscience program, or NeuroNex, a component of the BRAIN Initiative.

NSF also awarded a NeuroNex grant of $800,000 to a team led by Rice engineer Jacob Robinson for the study of magnetic techniques to stimulate specific, genetically modified neurons in lab animals without restricting their behaviors.
