The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites applications for research on focal cognitive deficits in central nervous system (CNS) disorders. This announcement is made together with 4 other components of the National Institutes of Health and is supported by 2 funding mechanisms: R01 and R21.
It is estimated that more than 95 million Americans live with a disorder of the CNS. The burden of these disorders, including their affect on cognition, is substantial. Disorders of the CNS and their consequent impact on cognition have the potential to profoundly impact the subsequent health of persons with these diseases. The purpose of this announcement is to study the focal, or specific and limited, cognitive deficits experienced by persons with CNS disorders and the secondary effects on their health and quality of life.
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.
