NINDS Neuroscience Funding Announcements



Basic And Translational Research On The Cognitive Sequelae Of Parkinson's Disease

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

Brief Description:

Under this PA, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) invites research grant applications (R01) that address the underlying neurobiological mechanisms associated with the cognitive and linguistic sequelae of Parkinson's disease. A major goal of this PA is to begin a process where basic and clinical scientists from various disciplines can overcome barriers to cross-disciplinary research and examine all aspects of cognition in the context of the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease. The purpose of this initiative is to: 1) focus the attention of neuroscientists on the detrimental neurodegenerative processes that affect cognition and language in Parkinson's disease; 2) promote the interaction of cognitive neuroscientists and clinical scientists conducting research in Parkinson's disease patients; and 3) develop integrative research programs that advance our understanding of the substrates of cognitive function in health and in Parkinson's disease. Applications that demonstrate the establishment of collaborative research programs with researchers at existing Centers of Excellence for Parkinson's disease research are particularly encouraged.
