While the importance of constructing large scale database on brain science and of the brain science research utilizing them is pointed out, they are practically quite undeveloped fields, and few researchers are involved. To promote research in this field and foster researchers involved in the research, RIKEN CBS has set up a collaboration research system to develop database related technologies in the field of brain science with researchers in a wide range of fields. In 2019FY, each successful application will be provided with a support of up to 2.5 million yen, and up to 8 cases will be supported. The application guidelines are available at the following web site. We hope to receive many applications. The deadline for applications is May 6, 2019.

Application for Collaboration Research for Brain Science Database Technology Development, Office of the Center Director, RIKEN Center for Brain Science
Secretariat of the INCF Japan Node (J-Node) was launched in 2005 as the starting of Neuroinformatics Japan Center, RIKEN Brain Science Institute (BSI). In April 2018, J-Node secretariat was inherited to Neuroinformatics Unit, RIKEN Center for Brain Science (CBS). However, based on reconsideration at CBS, closure of J-Node secretariat at the end of FY 2018 has been decided. Accordingly, the collaborative development of neuroinformatics platforms will finish. Each J-Node related site is going to be transferred to a new managing form. Most of all are to be available for your continuous use, as shown in the table below. We also close mailing service from J-Node mailing list.
It was a great pleasure for the secretariat to work for neuroinformatics in collaboration with many people in domestic and overseas institutions all these years. We would like to sincerely and deeply acknowledge all of your cooperation and wish your further step for open neuroscience.
