Obama launches $100 million brain-mapping project

• The

US President Barack Obama on Tuesday announced a $100 million project to map the intricate inner mysteries of the human brain, targeting cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s.

“The most powerful computer in the world isn’t nearly as intuitive as the one we’re born with,” Obama said at the White House.

“There’s this enormous mystery waiting to be unlocked. And the BRAIN initiative will change that by giving scientists the tools they need to get a dynamic picture of the brain in action,” Obama said.

The research initiative, financed with $100 million of Obama’s budget that will be unveiled next week, will seek to find new ways to treat, cure and prevent brain disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.

Obama is worried. He's worried that some outside group might identify crime patterns. Then they might develop some kind of cure that they would covertly spray into the atmosphere, and it would cure all criminal minds. He doesn't want to change. So he is desperately looking for the antidote for the crime-mind cure.
