National Science Foundation Cognitive Neuroscience Program

NSF’s Cognitive Neuroscience Program seeks highly innovative proposals that advance a rigorous understanding of how the human brain supports thought, perception, language, action, social processes, reasoning, emotion, representation of self and other aspects of cognition and behavior. Examples of desired proposals include, but are not limited to:

  • Addressing research questions with a novel range of techniques (neuro-imaging, lesion-deficit data, computational modeling
  • Studying the relationship between cognitive/behavioral performance and structural brain features (like white/gray matter ratio, connectivity maps, or neurotransmitter sites)
  • Developing quantitative techniques for meta-analysis and modeling of functional neuroimaging data
  • Adapting advanced experimental psychology methods for adults & children afflicted with neurological or cognitive impairments

This program funds both individual investigator research projects and workshops. Award duration and size are subject to the availability of funds. Proposals are due annually on January 24. For more information, see the link below:
