BRAIN Initiative: Theories, Models and Methods for Analysis of Complex Data from the Brain (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This FOA solicits new theories, computational models, and statistical tools to derive understanding of brain function from complex neuroscience data.  Proposed tools could include the creation of new theories, ideas, and conceptual frameworks to organize/unify data and infer general principles of brain function; new computational models to develop testable hypotheses and design/drive experiments; and new mathematical and statistical methods to support or refute a stated hypothesis about brain function, and/or assist in detecting dynamical features and patterns in complex brain data.  It is expected that the tools developed under this FOA will be made widely available to the neuroscience research community for their use and modification.  Investigative studies should be limited to validity testing of the tools being developed.
