Obama launches effort to map the human brain

Seeking to revolutionize our understanding of the human mind, and capitalize on new job prospects, the president unveiled a $100 million research initiative to map the human brain.

“Mapping the human brain is exactly the type of research we should be funding, by reprioritizing the $250 million we currently spend on political and social science research into expanded medical research, including the expedited mapping of the human brain,” Obama said in a statement today. “It’s great science.”
