PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The 24th annual Neuronal Plasticity Prize of the Fondation Ipsen has been awarded to three researchers for their pioneer works in the domain of “Mechanisms of memory”: Tim V.P. Bliss (NIMR - Division of Neurophysiology, London, UK), Richard G. Morris (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK) and Yadin Dudai (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel). The discovery of the LTP (long-term potentiation) fourty years ago by Terje Lomo (Fondation Ipsen Neuronal Plasticity Prize Laureate in 1992) and Tim Bliss represented a major event in the comprehension of the physiological mecanisms of the memory. This finding was enhanced by the discovery of the implication of the glutamate receptors on which many pionners in the field of the memory worked. Among them Richard Morris elaborated the well-known ‘watermaze’ test. Moreover, the advances in neurogenetic allowed, in particular thanks to Yadin Dudai’s work, to better decode the molecular mecanisms of memorization. The €60,000 prize was awarded on May 24, 2013 at the 11th Colloque de la Société des Neurosciences in Lyon, France by an international jury1 led by Professor Nikos Logothetis (Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics, Tubingen, Germany).
