Eve Marder to receive George A. Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience
Eve Marder, the Victor and Gwendolyn Beinfield Professor of Neuroscience, has been named the recipient of the 18th Annual George A. Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience. The award, given by the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (CNS), will be presented at the 2012 CNS meeting in Chicago, Ill., which will be held between March 31 and April 3.
The George A. Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience was established in 1995 by the CNS to honor the innovative scholarship of George A. Miller, whose many theoretical advances have greatly influenced the discipline of cognitive neuroscience. The first 10 years of the prize were funded by generous support from the James S. McDonnell Foundation.
Each year a call for nominations for the George A. Miller Prize is made to the membership of the society. The prize is awarded to the nominee whose career is characterized by distinguished and sustained scholarship and research at the cutting-edge of their discipline and that has in the past, or has the potential in the future, to revolutionize cognitive neuroscience. Extraordinary innovation and high impact on international scientific thinking should be a hallmark of the recipient’s work. The recipient of the prize attends the annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society and delivers the George A. Miller Lecture.
