What is SPARC?

The SPARC Program's goal and basic organization

The SPARC program enables the development of the next generation of neuromodulation devices informed by the systematic development of high-resolution anatomical and functional neural circuit maps of the peripheral nervous system.

The SPARC Data and Resource Center (DRC) is charged with creating a publicly available, multifunctional online hub facilitating coordination, synthesis, and prediction via four core functions: Data Coordination, Map Synthesis, Modeling and Simulation, and Knowledge Management. Funded investigators who are producing data, models, and tools closely coordinate with the DRC.
