The National Science Foundation released a new BRAIN Initiative Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

Developing a National Research Infrastructure for Neuroscience (NeuroNex)
NSF 16-569

The National Science Foundation announced its intention to foster the development of a national research infrastructure for neuroscience (NSF 16-047) to support collaborative and team science for achieving a comprehensive understanding of the brain. As part of this effort, NSF recently released a solicitation, NSF 16-569, which calls for two types of proposals:

1.) Neurotechnology Hubs: Projects that foster development and dissemination/deployment of innovative research resources and instrumentation, neurotechnologies and behavioral paradigms that can be applied across the phylogenetic spectrum, while providing greater access to existing resources where possible and serving broad communities within the brain sciences; and

2.) Theory Teams: Projects that foster theoretical approaches with the potential to reveal the neural underpinnings of behavior and cognition across organizational levels, scales of analysis, and/or a range of species.
