Purpose. Under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) invite research grant applications that address the underlying neurobiological mechanisms associated with cognitive impairment and mood disturbance in Parkinson's disease (PD), that address the development of clinical interventions and therapeutics for cognitive impairment and affective symptoms in PD, or that promote improved clinical diagnosis or treatment of cognitive and affective impairment in PD. A goal of this FOA is to begin a process where basic and clinical scientists from various disciplines can overcome barriers to cross-disciplinary and biobehavioral research and examine all aspects of cognition and affective regulation in the context of the diagnosis and treatment of Parkinson's disease.
