FIU: ‘Big data’ research gets boost from National Science Foundation

FIU physicist Angie Laird is leading a team of researchers embarking on a new phase of the National Science Foundation’s BRAIN Initiative.

NSF has awarded 18 grants totaling $17 million to multidisciplinary teams from across the United States to conduct frontier research focused on neural and cognitive systems. Laird’s project, titled the Automated Text Harvesting and Exploration of Neuroimaging Annotations (ATHENA) Resource, is designed to allow enhanced access to cognitive neuroscience knowledge that is currently locked in journal text.
