|The BRAIN Initiative℠ is part of a new Presidential focus aimed at revolutionizing studies of the human brain. NIH released six new funding opportunities in support of the BRAIN Initiative focused on advancing our technological capabilities for understanding how circuits of interacting neurons function to create behavior. The Blueprint will be a lead contributor. Share your thoughts at brainfeedback.nih.gov.|
|The Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC) now offers a cloud-based computing environment to help researchers manage and analyze large volumes of brain imaging data. With NITRC-CE, an analysis that would typically require 24 hours can be done in less than 10 minutes, for a nominal fee.|
|A special issue of Neurology marks the unveiling of the NIH Toolbox, a set of standard measures for assessing neurological and behavioral health in clinical studies. A series of articles describes the tests within the Toolbox, how the Toolbox was constructed and validated, and efforts to establish norms for Toolbox data.|
