This effort will begin with worms...yes and it will dither away countless millions on worms then fish, amphibs, reptiles, birds, mammals, primates and finally, with 20 million left - will commence into humans. The most important question in Understanding the Brain is do we start by conducting a longitudinal study, commencing with a group of babies from around the world, from the ten social and ten economic deciles, from parents who have known EQ's, IQs. and other measures of brain-driven (versus instinct-driven) behaviors. Do we track those baby's development month-by-month recording the most commonly occurring shaping events (nutrition/feeding; attachment/emotional training; disciplining/behavior training; schooling/academic training; open-discovery/self-guided training). do we maintain an active 3-D model in realtime/quantum computers to trace the differences in response to "no-harm testing/experiments", do we commit and keep those subjects anonymous throughout the timespan of the experiment (likely 80 years or so)? 100million can be spent in a three-year extravaganza or INVESTED and MANAGED for the long-term pay-off. How wise and well can this be be done. Sounds like a Jobs program for physiologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, sensor physicists/engineers and IT jocks to me.
