Case Western Reserve University researchers are part of an international team striving to crack the secrets of how our neurons—the nerve cells that send and receive signals to and from the brain—work together to regulate physical movements. The work is supported by a $3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative, a $1.3 billion interdisciplinary endeavor launched in 2014 to revolutionize our understanding of the human brain. Case Western Reserve’s efforts will be spearheaded by Hillel Chiel, professor of biology, neurosciences and biomedical engineering, and Peter Thomas, professor of mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics.
