CWRU roboticist, neuroscientist to lead $8 million National Science Foundation Project


A pair of biorobotic pioneers at Case Western Reserve University will lead a five-year, $8 million National Science Foundation (NSF) project to further explore challenges scientists face in making more lifelike and responsive robots, according to a news release.

The project is part of a $50 million endeavor enlisting 70 researchers from four countries to investigate how brains work and interact with their environment. It is funded under NSF’s Next Generation Networks for Neuroscience, or NeuroNix, a program that aims to establish international research networks building on existing global investments in neurotechnologies in an effort to understand the brain.
