Hoeven: National Science Foundation Awards Nearly $200,000 to NDSU

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, announced today that the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $198,332 to North Dakota State University (NDSU) to support neuroscience research using fNIRS, a non-invasive neuroimaging technique for investigating brain function through the measurement and analysis of infrared light that has been transmitted through the scalp, skull and cortical tissue.

“NDSU is a world-class research institution, and it’s important to make sure that their team is equipped with the latest technology to ensure that they stay at the forefront of innovation,” Hoeven said. “The availability of fNIRS technology will greatly enhance training opportunities and research competitiveness for faculty and students alike.”
