The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces its Next Generation Networks for Neuroscience (NeuroNex) program and opens the call for submissions for two types of projects: neurotechnology hubs and theory teams.
The NSF intends for the neurotechnology hubs to generate projects that foster development, dissemination, and deployment of research resources, instrumentation, technologies, and behavioral paradigms that can be applied across the phylogenetic spectrum. Additionally, they hope the hubs will provide greater access to existing resources where possible and serve the broader community of brain sciences. For the theory teams, the NSF hopes that the projects will foster theoretical approaches with the potential to reveal the neural underpinnings of behavior and cognition across organizational levels, scales of analysis, and/or ranges of species.
For further details, please visit the program’s webpage and attend the NeuroNex Webinar on July 19, 2016, at 1 pm EDT.
