Obama to announce $100M for brain research

President Obama on Tuesday will unveil a $100 million initiative to research the human brain, in hopes of unlocking further understanding of brain disorders.

The initiative, dubbed Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies, or BRAIN, "aims to help researchers find new ways to treat, cure, and even prevent brain disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury," the White House said.

    I am sure that, as any other study done to understand neuroscience, the appropriate volunteers will be found.

    No such picture has been taken, either in context or out of it.

    Can you actually take a picture of words, Mary? Wouldn't that be c/p? Go ahead. C/p the whole thread.
    Do you not like it when people take Biblical verses out of context? Yeah, like that.
