National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The Neural Prosthesis Program of the National Institute of

Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Institutes of

Health, is seeking a contract to determine the feasibility of

establishing connections with specific target neuronal populations in

the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) by developing and

evaluating a cultured neuron probe.  If successful, the probes will

be implanted into a mammalian CNS region and an attempt will be made

to demonstrate two-way communication between the linking neurons and

the target neurons.  Personnel with established expertise in

neurophysiology, biomaterials, and microfabrication are required.  It

is anticipated that one award will be made in May 1993, for a period

of three years.

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

RFP, please submit a written request to the following address, and

supply this office with two self addressed mailing labels.  All

responsible sources will be considered by the agency.  The RFP will

be issued on or about October 8, 1992 with proposals due on December

7, 1992.
