BRAIN Neuroethics Working Group (NEWG) Workshop on Continuing Trial Responsibilities

Participants of implanted neural device trials may have research-related care needs after the trial has ended. For example, these needs could include continued access to the device, device maintenance and support, explantation, and/or medical care resulting from participating in the research study. Discussions in the field suggest that investigators, grantee institutions, device manufacturers, funders and others involved in the trial have shared responsibilities to facilitate some of these needs.

Labroots Neuroscience Virtual Conference

Labroots is excited to present the 10th Annual Neuroscience Virtual Conference, to be broadcasted live on March 10th, 2022.  This distinguished, online-only, event is free to attend and will once again bring together the neuroscience community to discuss and present the newest advances in understanding the human brain, neuropsychiatric disorders, and behavioral processes as it relates to the brain function. 

BRAIN Initiative: Targeted BRAIN Circuits Projects - TargetedBCP (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

This FOA solicits applications for research projects that seek to understand how circuit activity gives rise to mental experience and behavior using innovative, methodologically-integrated approaches. The goal is to support adventurous projects that can realize a potentially transformative outcome within 5 years. Applications are expected to address circuit function in the context of specific behaviors or neural systems, such as sensation, perception, attention, reasoning, intention, decision-making, emotion, navigation, communication, or homeostasis.
