Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative: Brain-Behavior Quantification and Synchronization

This concept aims to: develop high resolution tools and analytic approaches that can precisely quantify species-appropriate behaviors as a multi-dimensional response and synchronize these with simultaneously recorded brain activity; build new conceptual and computational models of behavioral systems, with which to establish causal brain/behavior relationships and enable closed loop intervention development; and, establish a cross-disciplinary consortium of researchers to develop and disseminate new tools, ontologies, research designs, and ethical frameworks that will transform how mechanistic brain-behavioral research is conducted.
