UC San Diego Creates Center for Brain Activity Mapping

In response to a request made by President Obama, the Center for Brain Activity Mapping or (CBAM) has been formed by UC San Diego. This organization has slowly been forming since early April and Ralph Greenspan has been appointed the director. The center encompasses neuroscience, cognitive functions, psychology, and chemistry just to name a few. The hopes are with a better understanding and an updated model of the brain pathways; this knowledge can in turn be used to treat not only Alzheimer’s disease, but other forms of dementia as well. It could also be used to treat autism, traumatic brain injury, etc. To read more please visit http://www.adcs.org
