Innovative Ideas in Neuroscience
Eight new neuroscience projects have been funded through CMU's ProSEED grant program. The projects, which are part of CMU’s BrainHubSM initiative, propose innovative solutions to answer some of the most pressing questions in brain science.
The projects represent CMU's strengths in biology, computer science, psychology, statistics and engineering, areas that are the foundation for the global BrainHub initiative.
