Leibniz Prize 2012 to honor 11 outstanding researchers
Date:12/14/2011

chnology, Munich
  • Prof. Dr. Jrg Wrachtrup, Experimental Physics, University of Stuttgart

    In announcing the new winners, DFG President Matthias Kleiner highlighted the importance of the prize as an individual award: "The Leibniz Prize is the most important and most prominent form of individual support provided by the DFG, which in turn is still the backbone of our research funding overall. It recognizes in a special way outstanding individuals who advance science and research with unique ideas that give rise to insights," said Kleiner. The prize winners for 2012, like the winners of previous years, have demonstrated in an impressive way the importance of basic research. The work for which they are being honoured has been foundational, be it for a better understanding of human action or of our environment, for innovative scientific methods that are used worldwide, or for the development of new vaccines and therapies.

    Prof. Dr. Michael Brecht (44), Neurophysiology/Cellular Neuroscience, Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin and Humboldt University Berlin

    The Leibniz Prize for Michael Brecht honours a scientist whose original research approaches and innovative methods have broken new ground in neurobiology. Brecht is particularly interested in the question of how neuronal activity triggers behaviour. He has arrived at foundational answers using the "in vivo whole-cell" method, developed by him, which allows precise measurements in freely moving animals. With it, Brecht has demonstrated that even the stimulation of one nerve cell can trigger motor behaviour. Brecht's recordings of the sensory cortex have also shown that, under certain circumstances, even stimulated individual nerve cells can control perception and behaviour. Both investigations have refuted the common assumption that behaviour can only be triggered by the activity of many
