2019 Seed Grant Awarded

The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience program has awarded Seed Grant funding to a project led by Darcy Kelley, Harold Weintraub Professor of Biological Sciences, and musician and researcher Ursula Kwong-Brown. Their one-year project will utilize a highly-sensitive EMG wristband to generate an interface that can be used to control multiple musical variables (instrument type, ranges of notes, keys, chords, etc.) with limited bodily movement. 

Mission

The Presidential Scholars in Society and Neuroscience (PSSN) program aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary, collaborative research to advance our understanding of mind, brain, and behavior.  The program fosters, and independently funds, direct communication and knowledge sharing between experts in the arts, humanities, and natural and social sciences; thus creating a new paradigm for interdisciplinary university-sponsored research.
