International teams, with NSF support, investigate key questions in neuroscience
Aug 20, 2020
For years, NSF's Next Generation Networks for Neuroscience program, also known as NeuroNex, has worked to help develop new tools and theories to solve the mysteries of the brain. Now, NSF and a group of international partners are working to put those resources in the hands of researchers around the world and create international partnerships to accelerate the next generation of neuroscience.

Bioluminescence researchers study neuronal activity, promote education
Feb 8, 2019
A team of University researchers received funding from the National Science Foundation in August 2017 to develop bioluminescent tools that can be used to enhance methods of studying the brain.
NeuroNex Teams Develop Theories to Advance Neuroscience Research
Oct 3, 2018
As the field of neuroscience advances, researchers must develop theories to navigate the data that are the result of this progress and develop conceptual frameworks to make sense of it all. NSF’s NeuroNex program is a response to this ever-growing need.
For the first time, researchers at The Rockefeller University have managed to study how brain cells in mice interact as the animals move about freely in their environment. The findings through this method could someday allow us to better understand brain disorders.
