"Through the Restoring Active Memory (RAM) program, DARPA seeks to accelerate the development of technology able to address this public health challenge and help servicemembers and others overcome memory deficits by developing new neuroprosthetics to bridge gaps in the injured brain. The end goal of RAM is to develop and test a wireless, fully implantable neural-interface medical device for human clinical use, but a number of significant advances will be targeted on the way to achieving that goal."

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:
