Cornelia Bargmann, Torsten N. Wiesel Professor and head of the Lulu and Anthony Wang Laboratory of Neural Circuits and Behavior, is the recipient of the 2012 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters announced today. Bargmann, who is also an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, is among the first women scientists to receive the prize, which was first awarded in 2008. She shares the prize with Winfried Denk of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research and Ann M. Graybiel of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which they received “for elucidating basic neuronal mechanisms underlying perception and decision.”
The Kavli Prize, which includes a $1 million prize, a scroll and a gold medal, will be presented to the laureates by Norway’s King Harald at an award ceremony in Oslo on September 4.
