Q. Can individuals volunteer to be part of the BRAIN Initiative? I’d be interested in having my brain scanned and mapped.

Though the programs that will be funded by the BRAIN initiative have not yet been determined, the best way to contribute along those lines would be to explore nearby academic neuroscience research centers, like those at universities, where there are (and will be) many carefully designed and exciting research studies involving human brain scanning and mapping and where volunteer subjects are very much appreciated.
