The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites grant applications for basic and translational research in emotion. This announcement is made together with 6 other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The study of emotion encompasses a wide range of physiological, social, cognitive, and developmental phenomena. It includes investigations of overt behaviors, interpersonal relationships, communication and decision-making, and the environmental circumstances and experiences that shape and elicit emotions. Emotion research can also include the study of licit and illicit psychoactive substances that alter mood, and conversely, the study of how emotions and moods can predispose to, or modulate the effects of, pain or alcohol and psychoactive substances.
For more information, potential applicants should contact Dr. Debra Babcock, Program Director, Systems and Cognitive Neuroscience Cluster, NINDS; telephone: 301-496-9964; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
