Hiroyuki Kato, PhD, has been awarded a Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Award in Neuroscience, which provides funding to highly promising early career investigators in neuroscience.

The Kato Lab will use this award to study how recurrent circuits in the mammalian cerebral cortex shape the sensory information processing in the brain. Findings in the simple mouse cortex should provide a first step towards an ultimate understanding of the neuronal circuits underlying higher integrative functions in humans, and how they fail in diseased brains.
