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.
