NeuroFocus Chief Science Advisor Wins Humboldt Prize
Date:5/9/2008

Consumer Experience testing program.

The Humboldt Research Award is given to "outstanding scientists and scholars from all disciplines from abroad whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in future."

It was Dr. Knight's work in delineating the contribution of the frontal cortex in orchestrating human behavior and the recent discovery that ultra fast brain oscillations track behavior in the human cortex that earned him nomination and selection as a 2008 Humboldt Research Award winner. In announcing the Award to Dr. Knight, the Foundation cited that it was "given in the area of neurobiology in recognition of your past accomplishments in research and teaching."

Dr. Knight is a previous recipient of the Jacob Javits Neuroscience Investigator Award from the National Institute of Health for "distinguished contributions to neurological research."

"I am deeply honored to receive this award," Dr. Knight said. "The field of human brain research has come of age and I feel fortunate to be doing research in such an exciting time."
