In search of Immortality
The Human Brain Project
The Human Brain Project evolved from the concept of a National Neural Circuitry Database; the idea of developing such a national resource was evaluated by a committee empanelled by the National Academy of Science's Institute of Medicine. A summary of that evaluation, which spanned two years and included consultation with about 150 scientists, was published in the summer of 1991 by the National Academy Press as a book entitled Mapping the Brain and its Functions: Integrating Enabling Technologies into Neuroscience Research. The report recommended that this initiative, now called the Human Brain Project, be implemented.
