The function of complex neural circuits in the brain is an emergent property based on the coordinated activity of immense numbers of neurons. We propose launching a large-scale, international public effort, that we are calling the Brain Activity Map Project, to reconstruct the full record of neural activity across complete neural circuits. We are convinced this will prove to be an invaluable step toward understanding both fundamental and pathological brain processes.
