Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain

Neuroscience research has relied heavily on studying sensation and action: how sensory stimuli are detected and perceived, and how movements are produced. But much of what goes on in the brain is internal — states that control motivation and bias decisions, representations of remembered events, and cognitive explorations. A primary goal of the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB) is to expand our understanding of the role of internal brain processes in the arc from sensation to action, thereby discovering the nature, role and mechanisms of the neural activity that produces cognition.
