Deadline: January 24, 2010 and August 27, 2010
The National Science Foundation is inviting Cognitive Neuroscience applications for highly innovative and interdisciplinary research aimed at advancing a rigorous understanding of how the human brain supports thought, perception, affect, action, social processes, and other aspects of cognition and behavior, including how such processes develop and change in the brain and through time.
There are no specific guidelines on the amount an applicant can request, however it is expected that the proposed budget will appropriately match the size and duration of the research proposed. This opportunity utilizes NSF’s standard eligibility requirements, welcoming proposals on behalf of all qualified scientists, engineers and educators.
NSF has expressed a particular interest in supporting the development of new techniques and technologies for recording, analyzing, and modeling complex brain activity. Studies of disease states (e.g., brain damaged patients) may be components of projects supported by this program. However, the emphasis in these types of projects must be to advance basic scientific understanding of neural mechanisms, and not on disease etiology, diagnosis, or treatment.
