NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Genetic Basis of Complex Behaviors

Funding Contact: NINDS Funding Coordinator
Funding Categories: Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience

Brief Description:

The purpose of this program announcement (PA) is to solicit applications for multidisciplinary, methodologically rigorous programs of neuroscience research that will use advanced techniques for statistical and molecular genetic analysis in human and animal populations to elucidate the genetic basis of complex behaviors. This PA is issued in response to the growing evidence that complex behaviors of relevance to human health and disease show varying degrees of genetic influence. Examples include complex behaviors associated with memory, activity level, harm avoidance, reward dependence, emotionality, contextual fear conditioning, sensorimotor gating, drug seeking, pain perception and reactivity, and analgesic response. The goals of this PA are to quantify genetic and environmental effects and gene-environment interactions and to locate and characterize genes affecting complex behaviors in humans and animals.
