DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the area of neurobehavioral protective factors and wellbeing to prevent and mitigate the effects of traumatic stress leading to suicidality and behavioral health disorders in warfighters.
STRENGTHEN aims to build on recent advances in neuroscience and clinical practice to increase wellbeing, and prevent and mitigate the effects of traumatic stress leading to behavioral health disorders and suicidality in warfighter and civilian populations. STRENGTHEN will accomplish this goal through enhancing the behavioral health protective factors of cognitive flexibility (CF) and emotion regulation (ER). Proposers must assume human subject testing will be considered.
Technical Areas:
TA1: Neuro-Mechanistic Models: Performers will develop individualized brain network models of CF and ER.
TA2: Neuroplastic Interventions: Performers will design hybrid interventions to induce neuroplastic change in the functional connectivity and/or structure of CF and ER brain networks to optimize an individual’s CF and ER.
TA1 models are important for meeting TA2 intervention goals; therefore, proposers must propose to both TAs across all Phases
– Abstracts due 30 November 2022, full proposals due 23 January 2023
