The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential responders to NOT-MH-06-114 that the expiration date for submitting information has been extended. The new response expiration date is July 21, 2006.

This RFI is directed toward determining how best to accelerate research in developmental neuroscience. Responses to this RFI should be pertinent to the interests of one or more of the NIH Neuroscience Blueprint Institutes listed above. Comments pertaining to normal and/or atypical nervous system development are encouraged.

The NIH Blueprint goal for fiscal year 2008 is to generate novel research tools and resources to rapidly advance the field of neural development. The Blueprint represents a unique means to enhance cooperative activities among the fifteen NIH Institutes and Centers that support research on the nervous system. To that end, the Blueprint encourages visionary ideas that will dramatically stimulate the field developmental neuroscience.

Please send responses to no later than July 21, 2006 (Extended to October 31, 2006 per NOT-MH-06-117).
