Ayuno Nakahashi wins fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program

Our SFB postdoctoral researcher Ayuno Nakahashi has been awarded a three-year fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program, making her one of only 11 percent of successful candidates for this highly prestigious international award. She will study social interactions and decision-making in rhesus monkeys, the basis for understanding neurological conditions such as those that occur in autism. With this project, Ayuno Nakahashi breaks away from conventional research methods that test subjects individually in settings they had been trained for over months. Instead, she will record wirelessly the activity of nerve cells in the brain of two animals that interact in much more naturalistic scenarios. For this project, Ayuno will continue work in very close cooperation with other SFB members.
