The KavliPrize in Neuroscience is shared between A. James Hudspeth, of the The Rockefeller University, Robert Fettiplace, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Christine Petit, of Collège de France / Institut Pasteur, for their scientific discoveries of the molecular and neural mechanisms of hearing.
The Laureates used complementary approaches to unravel the mechanisms by which hair cells in the inner ear transform sound into electrical signals that can be deciphered by the brain.
Congratulations to the new neuroscience laureates!
