Because of the wealth of data on the visual system, the NRV (Neuroinformatics Research in Vision) project will use vision research to promote experimental, theoretical and technical research as a pilot study on neuroinformatics. The project was founded from the grant for "Target Oriented Research and Development for Brain Science" , the Special Coordination Funds for Promoting Science and Technology by the MEXT, JAPAN.
The Biomedical Informatics Research Network (BIRN) is a National Institutes of Health initiative that fosters distributed collaborations in biomedical science by utilizing information technology innovations. Currently the BIRN involves a consortium of 21 universities and 30 research groups that participate in one or more of three test bed projects centered around brain imaging of human neurological disorders and associated animal models. The BIRN mission is to accelerate Discovery Science by creating and fostering a new biomedical collaborative culture and infrastructure.
