This year's Prize Giving Ceremony will take place on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 11 a.m. .

 


Valentino Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience

The award is biannually presented by the Bernstein Association for Computational Neuroscience to a scientist in recognition of outstanding research that contributes to our understanding of the functioning of the brain. The major criterion for the selection of the awardee is the impact of the recipient’s research on the neurosciences. In the spirit of Valentino Braitenberg's research, special emphasis is given to theoretical studies elucidating the functional implications of brain structures and their neuronal network dynamics. The crucial work should preferentially have been carried out in a European institution.

The 2014 Prize Giving Ceremony including the talk of the Awardee Axel Borst had to be rescheduled. It will take place during this year's Bernstein Conference on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at 9:20 am .


"Brains for Brains" - Young Researchers' Computational Neuroscience Award

With the Brains for Brains Award, the Bernstein Association for Computational Neuroscience honors young scientists who plan to pursue a research career in computational neuroscience and who have achieved scientific publications at a very early stage of their careers.
