NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



NINDS Announces Availability of Funds for Competitive Revision Applications for Grand Challenge on Optimal Cortical Control of DARPA Revolutionizing Upper-Limb Prosthetics (R01 and R37)

Funding Contact(s): Daofen Chen, Ph.D., James Gnadt
Funding Categories: Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience

Brief Description:

The purpose of this notice is to encourage requests for competitive revisions to research projects currently funded by NIH R01 and R37 grant mechanisms, appropriate for support on research and development for a Grand Challenge on achieving optimal electrocorticography (ECoG) based cortical control of the Revolutionizing Upper-limb Prosthetics 2009 developed by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The Grand Challenge will be to achieve reaching and grasping of objects by the DARPA Arms in a subject’s natural work space, by obtaining maximum cortical control that can be realized on the highly anthropomorphic prosthetic arm and hand.
