International Prize – Thematic 2018

Architecture of Neural circuits :
from synapses to cognition

A fundamental feature of neural organization is the arrangement of synapses and circuits to enable the emergence of higher-order functions, including sensory processing, adaptive motor behaviour, and cognition.
The prize will be awarded to an internationally recognized scholar who has significantly advanced our understanding of neural circuit organization, at a cellular or molecular level, in relation to the emergence of function.

The award for the International Prize is 60 000 €
