A circuit theory of cortical function

Principal Investigator: Charles Gilbert, Rockefeller Unviersity
Title: A circuit theory of cortical function
BRAIN Category: Neuroengineering and Brain-inspired concepts and design (#1532591)

This project aims to develop and test a new conceptual framework for understanding brain function, and informing biologically based artificial intelligence systems. The underlying theory holds that the properties of any neuron and any cortical area are not fixed but undergo state changes with changing perceptual task, expectation and attention.

Remote regulation of neural activity

Principal Investigator: Sarah Stanley
Rockefeller University
Title: "Remote regulation of neural activity"
BRAIN Category: Tools for Cells and Circuits (RFA MH-14-216)

The Stanley team will focus on the development of tools to instantly and precisely target cell activity deep in the brain using radio waves, nanoparticles and genetically modified viruses.
