BRAIN Initiative: Requesting Public Input

The Congressional Neuroscience Caucus recently held a briefing with National Institutes of Health leaders to provide a status update on the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. The BRAIN team is in the planning stages and is requesting feedback from the public. The Academy will urge the team to evaluate the impact of nutrition and eating patterns on brain development and function.

As part of a new presidential focus on revolutionizing our understanding of the human brain, the BRAIN initiative aims to produce dynamic pictures of the brain that show how individual cells and complex neural circuits interact in both time and space.

The Academy anticipates commenting on the BRAIN team's proposal of work to ensure that the initiative examines environmental factors, such as nutrition, eating patterns and physical activity, to determine their impact on brain activity and development. By uncovering the connection between diet and brain health, registered dietitian nutritionists will be able to better provide nutrition counseling to a variety of clients and patients, including pregnant women, infants, toddlers, children, stroke victims, those who suffer from mental illness and many more.
