Task Force Topics and Rosters

Task Force 1

Task Force 1 met in Washington, D.C. on January 30 and 31, 1990. The group examined the issues related to establishing a complex of automated resources for neuroscience research from the perspective of those working in neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and other fields in which the hierarchical character of neural systems must be considered.

Task Force 2

Task Force 2 met in Washington, D.C. on February 1 and 2, 1990. The group examined the relevant issues in relation to mapping the presence of neurotransmitters, receptors, or changes in glucose metabolism, blood flow, or ion concentration in specific regions of the brain (i.e., autoradiographic and densitometric data).

Task Force 3

Task Force 3 met in Irvine, California, on March 5 and 6, 1990. The group examined the issues from the perspective of those involved in human brain imaging, including PET scanning, MRI visualization, CT scanning, and the combination or overlaying of these images.

Significant advances in brain research have been made, but investigators who face the resulting explosion of data need new methods to integrate the pieces of the "brain puzzle." Based on the expertise of more than 100 neuroscientists and computer specialists, this new volume examines how computer technology can meet that need.

Featuring outstanding color photography, the book presents an overview of the complexity of brain research, which covers the spectrum from human behavior to genetic mechanisms. Advances in vision, substance abuse, pain, and schizophrenia are highlighted.

The committee explores the potential benefits of computer graphics, database systems, and communications networks in neuroscience and reviews the available technology. Recommendations center on a proposed Brain Mapping Initiative, with an agenda for implementation and a look at issues such as privacy and accessibility.
