Overview:
A large-scale national brain project was launched in 2014 to understand the overall structure and mechanisms of the brain comprehensively. The project, called Brain Mapping by Integrated Neurotechnologies for Disease Studies (Brain/MINDS), specifically aims to elucidate the neural circuits underlying higher brain functions using unique experimental methods and animal models. This joint symposium invites young researchers with notable contributions to Brain/MINDS. We want to discuss and share with participants the necessary technologies, resources, and research measures to advance innovative brain research further. Toward this goal, Brain/MINDS provides open resources for cutting-edge technologies and databases, which will help build a collaborative network connecting scientists in diverse research fields.
