From Philanthropy News Digest, a service of the Foundation Center:

Carnegie Mellon University has announced the launch of a five-year, $75 million research initiative to advance understanding of how the structure and activity of the brain give rise to complex behaviors.

Leveraging CMU’s strengths in computer science, neuroscience, psychology, and engineering, CMU BrainHub will work with scientists at the University of Pittsburgh, Sun Yat-sen University in China, the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, and Oxford University and the University of Warwick in the United Kingdom to develop innovative computational and technological tools for studying the links between brain and behavior.
