First Comprehensive Census of Cell Types in Brain Area Controlling Movement

The primary motor cortex is the part of the brain that enables most of our skilled movements, whether it’s walking, texting on our phones, strumming a guitar, or even spiking a volleyball. The region remains a major research focus, and that’s why NIH’s Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative Cell Census Network (BICCN) has just unveiled groundbreaking resources: a complete census of cell types present in the mammalian primary motor cortex along with the first detailed atlas of the region, located along the back of the frontal lobe in humans (purple stripe above).

Every End has a New Beginning

Last week Francis Collins, MD, PhD, announced his plans to step down as the Director of the National Institutes of Health after serving in this position for 12 years. Francis is a force of nature — a tall man with a gigantic vision of how science can serve and improve society. I could recount for … Continue reading "Every End has a New Beginning"

NIH’s Nobel Winners Demonstrate Value of Basic Research

Last week was a big one for both NIH and me. Not only did I announce my plans to step down as NIH Director by year’s end to return to my lab full-time, I was reminded by the announcement of the 2021 Nobel Prizes of what an honor it is to be affiliated an institution with such a strong, sustained commitment to supporting basic science.
