FOCUS AREAS

The Ecosystem supports the full spectrum of idea formation across neuroscience and the study of the human mind, from basic science research to commercial ventures. Within our wider roadmap, BrainMind is surfacing and focusing special attention on ideas that are either critical to the advancement in our understanding of the brain or underfunded in relation to their importance. Examples include:
