      National Science Foundation boosts cognitive neuroscience

      The National Science Foundation (NSF) has established a major new emphasis on
      cognitive neuroscience, setting aside $10 million from its 2001 budget to
      support basic research in the fast-growing field and to promote efforts to
      strengthen its infrastructure. As early as next year, the foundation may
      establish cognitive neuroscience as a formal, permanent program area.

      The new allocation represents about 8 percent of total research funding within
      NSF's Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences and about 16
      percent of the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences' budget. No
      program area within that division is larger.
