MICROMACHINED STIMULATING ELECTRODES

NIH GUIDE, Volume 21, Number 4, January 31, 1992

RFP AVAILABLE: NIH-NINDS-92-13

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.
