The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation names winners of Klerman and Freedman Prizes
Date:7/28/2014

ted to reverse-engineer specific functional circuits well after neuronal identity has been assigned. His ultimate goal is to develop cell-based strategies for manipulating these programs to promote rewiring and functional recovery from neurodegenerative disease or after injury, including identifying molecular targets to treat and prevent autism.

"The NARSAD Grant gave me the support I needed to turn a daring project into reality," says Dr. Jabaudon. It allowed me to focus my efforts on a fundamental biology endeavorthe reprogramming of neurons and the circuits they form, while maintaining a long-term, disease-related perspective."

The Foundation also awarded honorable mentions for both the Klerman and Freedman Prizes; Klerman Prize honorable mentions were awarded to Elena I. Ivleva, MD, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, and Aristotle N. Voineskos, M.D., FRCPC, Ph.D., an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and Koerner New Scientist and Head of the Kimel Family Imaging-Genetics Laboratory at the University's Center for Addiction and Mental Health.

Dr. Ivleva was honored for her work identifying underlying mechanisms of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorder that may aid in future development of objective biomarker-based diagnostic tools.

Dr. Voineskos used his grant to study the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) in treating working memory deficits in patients with schizophrenia. Dr. Voineskos demonstrated that rTMS can improve working memory impairments, which significantly impede day-to-day functioning and remain one of the most difficult to treat symptoms of schizophrenia.

Freedman Prize honorable mentions were awarded to Mazen Kheirbek, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurobiology, Depart
