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.
