The University of Missouri, The Ohio State University and Internet2 seek to advance brain science using 100-gigabit Ethernet technology and cyber-infrastructure

The University of Missouri (MU), The Ohio State University (OSU) and Internet2 have announced substantial investments in technology to support researchers who collaborate from different locations. The new cyber-infrastructure supports valuable research, including brain-imaging innovations to better detect and treat autism and new capabilities for remote elderly care.

Recent advances in brain imaging technology are generating ever-large quantities of high-resolution data. Scientists engaged in this research—which aims to improve the detection, diagnosis and treatment of autism and better elderly patient outcomes—must transport, exchange, access and analyze hundreds of terabytes of imaging data on a regular basis.
