Mapping The Mind

AIR DATE: April 15, 2013

Last week, President Obama announced an ambitious project to map the human brain. The federal government would allocate $100 million to find out how neurons communicate with each other in the creation of knowledge and memories. It could help researchers who are seeking cures for conditions like Alzheimer's Disease. Dr. Jeffrey Cummings is the director for the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, and he'll tell us what the project could mean for people who suffer from neurological diseases.
