Megascience efforts and the brain

Neuron. 2014 Jun 18;82(6):1209-11. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2014.05.045.

Abstract

Several recent megascale neuroscience efforts in the U.S. and Europe are concerned with developing infrastructure for tools, modeling, or neuroinformatics. It may seem surprising that they are not instead focused directly on gaining fundamental new insights into brain function.
