The NIH is certainly serious about making real things happen in neurotechnologies. Setting up large awards for significant steps forward in science and technology has been a tried and true method of encouraging the human race to make a leap from Lindberg to the X Prize. Here is another government-funded opportunity aimed at developing plans for the next-generation technologies for non-invasive imaging of brain function. Mapping detailed  live neuron interactions without the need for drilling through the skull is a holy-grail for reaching a deeper understanding of complete brain function, and it’s time to get real serious about making real progress with new technology.
