BRAIN Initiative Videos

The Link Map in this post (also accessible from the Quick Link icon on the far left of the menu bar) provides an easy way to access all the videos in this Hub from one PDF. Each name is a link to a slide show of video posts.

One of this Hub's goals is to aggregate and organize the most comprehensive selection of high quality videos related to the Initiative. We particularly focus on YouTube uploaded videos because they adhere to the CC-BY standard.

Over 100 neuroscientists participated in these meetings which resulted in the Brain Activity Map Project proposal that "would prove important to the scientific thinking behind the BRAIN Initiative, as well as a major catalyst for its launching."
