    Advancing Brain Science Through Innovative Technologies and Methods

     

    Major research projects around the globe such as the BRAIN Initiative seek to improve understanding of the brain through the development of new technologies. Researchers demonstrate how implementing new methods and tools โ€” such as improved techniques for imaging the connections between and communication among brain cells as well as nanoparticle therapies โ€” can advance the field and lead to novel discoveries.

    From One Sense to Another: Crossing Sensory Modalities

     

    Our senses form our perception of the world around us, but new research may change our understanding of how the brain interprets those sensory signals. Recent findings demonstrate how our senses of touch, vision, and hearing may intersect and how they may be involved in communicating emotional information.

    Legal Drugs of Abuse: The Science Behind Addiction

     

    Some of the most commonly abused drugs are the legal ones: alcohol, nicotine, and, in some places, marijuana. Understanding the neurobiological components involved in addiction to these drugs can help pave the way for new treatments. New studies suggest that scent conditioning during sleep may help reduce smoking and that stimulating a certain part of the brain may inhibit alcohol seeking.
