RESTORING ACTIVE MEMORY (RAM)

The goal of RAM is to develop a fully implantable device that can electrically stimulate the brain to improve memory function. The program’s immediate focus is to deliver new treatments for those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury, such as veterans returning from combat. In the long term, such therapies could help patients with a broad range of ailments, from Alzheimer’s to dementia. RAM is part of a broader portfolio of programs within DARPA that support President Obama’s BRAIN initiative.

As part of the RAM project, the University of Pennsylvania (including the Computational Memory Lab, the School of Arts and Sciences and the Perelman School of Medicine) is partnering with the following hospitals, institutes and universities:
