BRAIN! an awesome new initiative from the NIMH

This post from the National Institute of Mental Health director’s blog caught my eye in my email this morning and I wanted to pass the link on to all the other health science/mental health/psychology nerds out there.
I am super-excited about the BRAIN initiative, and hope everyone pushes for this to get funded!  Just think of all the advances the medical community could make in combating devastating illnesses like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and autism spectrum disorders with more complete studies of the brain.
