Three neuroscientists working at UK universities and one working at a German institution will be awarded the world’s most valuable prize for brain research. The topic of this year’s prize is Alzheimer’s disease. The Brain Prize is awarded by the Lundbeck Foundation in Denmark and is worth one million Euros. Awarded annually, it recognises one or more scientists who have made an outstanding contribution to neuroscience.
