The grand challenge in neuroscience is—it would seem—the effort of understanding the structure, function, and development of the nervous system in health and disease. Such understanding requires the integration of huge amounts of heterogeneous and complex data collected at multiple levels of investigation. The interdisciplinary field of neuroinformatics combines neuroscience with information science/technology and deals with the creation of the data systems that will be required to achieve such integration. The grand challenge in neuroinformatics is to achieve advanced, ultimately seamless, integration of all data needed to understand the nervous system.
