Prof. Bard Ermentrout Receives Mathematical Neuroscience Prize



Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to let you know that Bard Ermentrout has been selected to be one of two winners who will each receive the $100,000 Mathematical Neuroscience Prize, awarded by Israel Brain Technologies (IBT), a non-profit organization whose mission is to advance brain research and technology.

Mathematical Neuroscience Prize honors researchers worldwide who have significantly advanced our understanding of the neural mechanisms of perception, behavior and thought through the application of mathematical analysis and theoretical modeling.

The Prize ceremony will be on the first day of this year's BrainTech Conference, taking place on March 11-12, 2015 in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Please join me in congratulating Bard on this outstanding achievement.

Ivan Yotov, Chair
Department of Mathematics
