There is no exaggeration to be made when it comes to stating that human brains are extraordinary organs. No other brain in the animal kingdom is capable of generating the kind of higher consciousness that is associated with human ingenuity, with our ability to make plans and write poetry, which is so unique. It is, however, more mysterious than the least explored regions of the deepest oceans in the entire universe – as is often described. This is despite the fact that it is the most complex structure in the universe.

Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative was funded twice during the Obama administration. He viewed it as the Apollo mission of his time.

Though the initiative is small by government standards, it aims to accelerate the development of innovative technologies that could change human brain science radically. It could have enormous practical benefits, given how few effective treatments exist for a wide range of brain disorders, including childhood autism and senile dementia.

The majority of brain studies until recently were either focused on examining the gross changes caused by head injuries or tumours, or on measuring oxygen and glucose consumption in healthy brains. In the past, neuroscientists have explored the brain's mysterious landscape with limited success. New techniques, however, are generating great excitement among scientist
