  Neural Stimulation 



National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke


The Neural Prosthesis Program of the National Institute of Neurological

Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, is seeking a

contract to design and fabricate arrays of multielectrode stimulating

probes capable of independently stimulating multiple small populations

of neurons within the central nervous system. This project will involve

research and development on micromachined, two and three dimensional

thin-film electrode arrays capable of independently stimulating

clusters of cells in the central nervous system.  These electrodes will

be designed to provide intracortical microstimulation at multiple sites

in the visual cortex. The techniques developed will also be applicable

to spinal cord microstimulating electrodes needed for future bladder

and motor prostheses.  It is anticipated that one award will be made

for a period of three years in September 1992.


This is not a Request for Proposals (RFP).  To receive a copy of the

RFP, submit a written request to the address indicated below and supply

two self-addressed mailing labels.  All responsible sources shall be

considered by the agency.  The RFP will be issued on or about January

24, 1992, with proposals due on or about March 23, 1992.
