The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to inform applicants of NIA’s interest in research on the neural mechanisms underlying fundamental affective processes in aging. Grant applications are encouraged to 1) extend research on neural mechanisms underlying affective processes into aging models; and/or 2) seek to “reverse translate” clinical research results on affective processes in aging into model systems that support elucidation of fundamental neural mechanisms. NIA also wishes to encourage collaboration among cognitive and affective neuroscientists and/or investigators working at different levels of neurobiological and behavioral analysis.
NIA recommends that interested investigators contact one of the listed Scientific Contacts prior to submission
