Brain activity data is recorded at a tremendous rate in the modern age, providing an amount of data never before seen in neuroscience. New information about the structure and activity of brains, both human and non-human, is flooding researchers. Just a simple brain scan of a single fish can create terabytes of information. Until now, investigators were without any tool for quickly analyzing this wealth of data.
Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) researchers believe the field of neuroscience could gain new wealths of information from this data. In order for that to happen, they will first need to know how to interpret that information.
