Brain Imaging Drug Use Prevention Messages (R21): Purpose. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to stimulate exploratory, i.e., descriptive, hypothesis-generating, research on neurobiological responses to substance abuse prevention media messages in humans using established brain imaging methods. There is particular interest in studies across developmental stages and age groups. Research supported under this FOA may eventually be used to develop a new generation of effective, tailored anti-drug messages. Given the relative lack of empirical research in this area, this initiative expects proposals to be exploratory, hypothesis-generating studies rather than confirmatory studies. Since applications are to be exploratory in nature, pilot data that provide support for the proposed hypotheses and aims (i.e., Proof of Concept) are not required, nor should applications be penalized for lacking preliminary data supporting the proposed hypotheses and aims. However, applicants are encouraged to provide evidence that they have the capability to conduct the studies (i.e. Proof of Feasibility), by documenting the availability of needed resources, the training and experience of the investigator team, and/or the conduct of related studies.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are eligible to apply. Eligible agencies of the Federal Government can apply. Faith-based or community-based organizations can apply. General Characteristics of Responsive Applications In order to be judged responsive, applications submitted under this FOA must 1) be conducted in human subjects, but not necessarily in subjects who are current or past users of drugs of abuse; 2) use either established substance abuse prevention media messages or public service announcements (PSAs) (a) whose effectiveness has been empirically investigated, (b) are based on a specific conceptual model or (c) has been in a current or past public media campaign; 3) use an established brain imaging method capable of detecting regional brain activity (e.g. fMRI, MRS, SPECT, PET, Source Localized Evoked Potentials) elicited in response to the presentation of prevention media messages. Applications that only use drug-related stimuli that are not part of a larger prevention message are not appropriate, but such material can be used as a comparison condition. Applications that solely employ methods that do not measure brain responses to presentation of the prevention message (e.g. structural MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Computed Tomography) or where brain activation is inferred (e.g. cognitive or neuropsychological measures) are not appropriate, unless they are used in conjunction with functional brain imaging methods.. Applications that only incorporate physiological methods not tied to the activity of specific brain regions (e.g., non-localized EEG/ERP, peripheral psychophysiological measures) are not appropriate, but such measures can be used in conjunction with a regional brain imaging technique; 4) be conducted by multidisciplinary teams with cognitive neuroscience, brain imaging, prevention research and health communications expertise. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact program staff with any questions regarding the responsiveness of their proposed project to the goals of this FOA. Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each application is scientifically distinct.
