Understanding the BRAIN with Fleming Crim of NSF and Tom Insel of NIH
Credit and Larger Version

May 14, 2013

Physical and Mathematical Principles of Brain Structure and Function Workshop "Uncovering the Brain: Featuring Fleming Crim (NSF/MPS) and Thomas Insel (NIH/NIMH)"  

Listen to Fleming Crim, Assistant Director for MPS and Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute discuss the recent workshop on "Physical and Mathematical Principles of Brain Structure and Function" co-sponsored by MPS and BIO.

The workshop was held in Arlington, VA on May 6-7, 2013 and brought together leading scientists to identify basic physical and mathematical principles of brain structure and function. Understanding how the human brain works has emerged as a major international focus of research for the coming decade, which will require advances in structural, functional, and computational neuroscience that can only be developed through experiments and computational studies on model systems such as nematodes, fruit flies, zebrafish, mice, and primates. For more information about the workshop, please see:http://physicsoflivingsystems.org/brainstructureandfunction/

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2014, its budget is $7.2 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives about 50,000 competitive requests for funding, and makes about 11,500 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $593 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
