Imaging in vivo neurotransmitter modulation

Principal Investigator: Dean Foster Wong
Johns Hopkins University
Title: Imaging in vivo neurotransmitter modulation of brain network activity in realtime
BRAIN Category: Next Generation Human Imaging (RFA MH-14-217)

Dr. Wong and colleagues will explore the possibility that newly developed infrared chemical tags may be used for minimally invasive imaging of rapidly changing human brain chemical messenger activity – with greater time resolution.

2014 BRAIN Initiative Awards

NIH announced its initial $46 million investment for the BRAIN Initiative reseach on September 30, 2014.

These projects lay the groundwork for visualizing the brain in action. More than 100 investigators in 15 states and several countries will work to develop new tools and technologies to understand neural circuit function and capture a dynamic view of the brain in action.

Funding opportunites for fiscal year 2016 were announced on Janurary 13, 2015.

NIH 2014 Grants, PIs, Labs, and Institutions

The NIH 2014 Grants are categorized by six types of grants each with their own RF number: Census of Cell Types; Tools for Cells and Circuits category; Next Generation Human Imaging category; Large-Scale Recording-Modulation – New Technologies; Large-Scale Recording-Modulation Optimization category; and Understanding Neural Circuits.
