In a column for USA Today (6/28), Former U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), a chief sponsor of the 2008 Mental Health Parity Act, and Husseini Manji, the former chief of the Laboratory of Molecular Pathophysiology and director of the Mood & Anxiety Disorders Program at the National Institute of Mental Health, tout the BRAIN Initiative.

They assert that the project, aimed at mapping the circuitry of the brain, would “not only help us to better understand complex human behavior, but could spark profound new advancements in treating brain disorders.”
