Stanley and Rozell Labs Jointly Awarded New $1.6M CRCNS award

Advances in modern technology have made it possible to precisely measure and manipulate neurons and neural circuits to read and write brain activity at the same time, enabling communication with the brain in the fast timescale on which it operates. The Rozell and Stanley labs are doing just that together in our project, called “Closed-Loop Computational Neuroscience for Causally Dissecting Circuits.” This project just received a $1.6 million, five-year award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and stroke (NINDS) through a long-standing and innovative NSF/NIH partnership in the Collaborative Research in Computational Neuroscience (CRCNS) program.
