A team of MBI neuroscientists led by UF biomedical engineer, Kevin Otto, Ph.D., has won an award up to $4.2 million under DARPA’s Targeted Neuroplasticity Training Program. Team members Drs. Jen Bizon, Sara Burke, Damon Lamb, Drew Maurer and Barry Setlow — from UF’s departments of neuroscience and psychiatry and the Malcom Randal VA Medical Center — will work to identify which neural pathways in the brain are activated by vagus nerve stimulation and how this approach can be used to enhance cognition. The overarching goal of the TNT program is to find ways to speed up cognitive skills training for linguists, intelligence analysts and cryptographers.
