Kavli video on the BRAIN Initiative

The Kavli Foundation has made possible an inspiring five minute video on the BRAIN Initiative. This video was produced by The Science Network in collaboration with Science Visualization.

Kavli Foundation sponsored numerous symposiums and informal meetings in 2011 through 2013 that developed the initial concept for the BRAIN Inititative. Over 100 neuroscientists participated in these meetings which resulted in the Brain Activity Map Project proposal that "would prove important to the scientific thinking behind the BRAIN Initiative, as well as a major catalyst for its launching."
