We are very happy that Joaquin Fuster, one of our scientific advisors, has won the 2007 George A. Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience.
The George A. Miller Prize in Cognitive Neuroscience was established in 1995 by the Cognitive Neuroscience Society and the James S. McDonnell Foundation to honor the career contributions of George A. Miller to cognitive neuroscience…The prize is awarded to the nominee whose career is characterized by distinguished and sustained scholarship and research at the cutting-edge of cognitive neuroscience. Extraordinary innovation and high impact on international scientific thinking should be a hallmark of the recipient’s work.
Dr. Joaquin Fuster is Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the Neuropsychiatric Institute and Brain Research Institute of University of California at Los Angeles’ School of Medicine. Fuster’s long research career has had wide-ranging implications for our understanding of the brain mechanisms of cognition.
The Neurocritic discusses Joaquin Fuster’s model of cognitive organization, Paul discusses Fuster’s work. Both are pretty technical. We will interview Dr. Fuster for our Neuroscience Interview SeriesÃ‚Â during the summer to make his exciting research accessible to all readers.
