This Brain-Behavior Quantification and Synchronization notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) seeks applications using non-human animal models that bring together transdisciplinary teams and aim to 1) develop, validate, and apply cutting-edge tools and methods for minimally invasive, multi-dimensional, high-resolution measurement of behavior at the organismal level, with synchronous capture of data from the dynamic environment of the organism; 2) develop advanced analytic approaches to integrate multidimensional behavioral, neural and environmental data; and 3) develop and test new theoretical and computational models aiming to advance understanding of behavior as a complex dynamic system. Proposed projects are expected to be designed with the capacity to integrate synchronously recorded neural data and/or inform existing models of neurobehavioral function, such as those developed with the support of the NIH BRAIN Initiative. This NOFO is intended for applications using non-human animal models. Applicants proposing research involving humans or use of human subjects data as a significant component should submit under the companion NOFO RFA-DA-24-040.
