The National Science Foundation supports research on perception, action and cognition through the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences. Emphasis is on research strongly grounded in theory. Central research topics for consideration by the Perception, Action, and Cognition panel include vision, audition, haptics, attention, memory, reasoning, written and spoken discourse, and motor control. The program encompasses a wide range of theoretical perspectives, such as symbolic computation, connectionism, ecological, nonlinear dynamics, and complex systems.
The National Science Foundation seeks proposals with the potential to transform neuroscience and cognitive science. The NSF is looking for proposals that reach across disciplines and across spatial and temporal scales of analysis in cognitive science and neuroscience. Such approaches will enhance our understanding of how the brain regulates the individual's biology, processes complex social and physical cues, and allows organisms to behave in and adapt to changing environments.
The Division of Graduate Education at the National Science Foundation challenges science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduate students across the nation to submit innovative ideas to prepare them for tomorrow's opportunities and challenges.
Who: Currently enrolled STEM graduate students (see additional eligibility criteria)
The goal of the National Robotics Initiative is to accelerate the development and use of robots in the United States that work beside, or cooperatively with, people. Innovative robotics research and applications emphasizing the realization of such co-robots acting in direct support of and in a symbiotic relationship with human partners is supported by multiple agencies of the federal government including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The UW College of Engineering invites you to an NSF-Graduate Research Fellowship Workshop for seniors, first year graduate students and beginning second year graduate students. The workshop will be held on October 19, (Friday) 12:00-1:30 pm on the UW campus in EEB 403 Conference Room. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to:
The National Science Foundation Biomedical Engineering program is soliciting proposals to fund projects in neural engineering (brain science, computational neuroscience, brain-computer interface, neurotech, cognitive engineering). According the program guidelines,
