The lead story in Monday's New York Times reported, "The Obama administration is planning a decade-long scientific effort to examine the workings of the human brain and build a comprehensive map of its activity, seeking to do for the brain what the Human Genome Project did for genetics." According to the paper, the initiative will be officially unveiled as part of the Obama Administration's FY 2014 budget proposal. The paper reported, "Scientists involved in the planning said they hoped that federal financing for the project would be more than $300 million a year, which if approved by Congress would amount to at least $3 billion over the 10 years." The paper further reported, "The initiative will be organized by the Office of Science and Technology Policy, according to scientists who have participated in planning meetings. The National Institutes of Health, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the National Science Foundation will also participate in the project, the scientists said," along with private foundations, research institutes, industry and others.
