The University of Minnesota has been a very active research site for multiple brain initiatives going back to the NIH Human Connectome Project: Lifespan where “Mapping of the Human Connectome” results were published in Science. Ongoing research at the Udall Center, Neuroengineering Laboratory and the University’s Department of Neurology continues the legacy of numerous publications and technology disclosures under the leadership of Dr. Kamil Urgbil, Dr. Jerrold Vitek, Dr. Matt Johnson, Dr. Suhasa Kodandaramaiah, Dr. Bin He and many more highly productive collaborators and inventors.
