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.
New Tool Shows Brain Activity of Mice in Action
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.

Community Collaborates to Build Largest Brain Data Repository
Big imaging data are often difficult to store and analyze. In fact, such data that can run into terabytes per day, simply can’t be stored or accessed on a laptop or workstation. As a result, labs across the world are forced to build their own software stack, which comes with its own challenges.
