$3M Grant to Fund Study of Internal States in the Brain

A group of researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh were recently awarded a three-million-dollar grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Over the next three years, the NSF grant will support research and trainees investigating internal states in the brain, including motivation, attention, and arousal, using brain-computer interfaces. The research will be jointly led by biomedical engineering's Steve Chase and Matt Smith, and BME/ECE’s Byron Yu, and Aaron Batista of the University of Pittsburgh.
