This may be promising

In his proposed 2014 budget, Mr. Obama will call for investing $100 million to launch the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative -- a project to speed up the development and application of technologies that will help researchers create dynamic brain imaging, in order to learn how individual brain cells and complex neural circuits interact.
The research could lead to new ways to treat brain disorders like Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy or traumatic brain injury. Furthermore, Mr. Obama said, it could lead to millions of Americans with "jobs we haven't even dreamt up yet." The president pointed to technological advancements that were propelled with government investments -- like GPS and the Internet -- to illustrate the importance of basic research investments.

The announcement of President Obama's BRAIN initiative sounds great, but I don't hold out much hope for real progress. President George HW Bush also announced "The Decade of the Brain," which was also supposed to make real progress in that area. I can't say I saw it then; I don't expect to see it now.

We are still locked in the room lined with shelves filled with boxes of keys. The key to let us out is in one of those boxes. The boxes are labeled "neurology", "endocrinology", "genetics", etc. – the researchers are looking in the wrong box for the key to open the door.
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"
