[Comp-neuro] Brain Corporation gets multi-million dollar funding to grow to 40 people

Brain Corporation receives Series B funding from Qualcomm Ventures and signs a multi-year R&D agreement with Qualcomm Incorporated to develop a spiking model of the motor control system. 

The funding will allow Brain Corporation to scale up to 40 scientists -- all experts in neuroscience of sensory and motor processing.

The goal is to create the greatest and the most advance computational neuroscience group under one roof. 

There are more than 20 research positions for computational neuroscientists who have expertise in modeling cerebellum, basal ganglia, brainstem and spinal cord, internal models of motor control, reinforcement learning, and animal locomotion.
