Summary: 

The initiative provides grant awards in three program areas: understanding human cognition, brain cancer research, and studying complex systems. Scholar and collaborative activity awards in the understanding human cognition area recognize researchers contributing to a better understanding of the neural underpinnings and behavioral ramifications of human cognition, while awards in the brain cancer research area provide support for research that generates new knowledge leading to increased rates of survival and improved functional recovery for individuals with brain cancer. Scholar awards in the complex systems area support scholarship and research on the development of theoretical and mathematical tools that can be applied to the study of complex, adaptive, nonlinear systems, while postdoctoral fellowship awards enable graduate students to broaden their research experience and acquire additional skills.
