DARPA Wants to Fix Broken Brains, Restore Lost Memories

DARPA Wants to Fix Broken Brains, Restore Lost Memories | Hot Technology News |

At the Society for Neuroscience meeting earlier this month in San Diego, California, Science sat down with Geoffrey Ling, deputy director of the Defense Sciences Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to discuss the agency’s plans for the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, a neuroscience research effort put forth by President Barack Obama earlier this year.

So far, DARPA has released two calls for grant applications, with at least one more likely:

The first, calledSUBNETS (Systems-Based Neurotechnology for Emerging Therapies), asks researchers to develop novel, wireless devices, such as deep brain stimulators, that can cure neurological disorders such as posttraumatic stress (PTS), major depression, and chronic pain.

The second,RAM (Restoring Active Memory), calls for a separate wireless device that repairs brain damage and restores memory loss.
