Full details (and forms for the required letter of intent) can be found on the Institute website. The seed fund is intended to fund activities in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences (broadly construed) that are likely to lead to applications for external funding, or which otherwise contribute to the mission of the Institute. Preference will be given to activities that involve collaboration and expertise across laboratories and/or traditional disciplinary boundaries.
