Brain Initiatives Generate Tsunami of Neuroscience Data

The Human Connectome copy

Around the world, various 'Brain Initiatives' are generating a tsunami of neuroscience data. But without a coherent strategy to analyze, manage and understand the data, advancements in the field will be limited. That's why Berkeley Lab's Kristofer Bouchard assembled an international team of interdisciplinary researchers to develop a plan to overcome the big data challenge. » Read More
