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 develop an active multichannel

recording microelectrode probe capable of recording from up to 32

sites on multiple penetrating shanks.  The broad objective of the

project is to develop multi-channel, penetrating microelectrode

arrays for intracortical CNS neural recording that will operate

reliably in chronic implants.  The approach is to integrate

micromachined electrode shanks with active electronics and with

integral flexible ribbon cables and/or with integral telemetry

systems.  Personnel with established expertise in micromachining,

bioengineering, integrated circuit design, and integrated circuit

fabrication are needed.  It is anticipated that one award will be

made for a period of three years in September 1993.


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 this office with two self-addressed mailing labels.  An RFP

will be issued on or about February 16, 1993 with proposals due on
