Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute member Michael Yartsev was honored with two awards at the Society for Neuroscience (SFN) 2022 Annual Meeting: the SFN Young Investigator Award and the Cajal Club Krieg Cortical Kudos Explorer Award. Both awards are given to a young scientist who has made outstanding contributions to neuroscience, and were presented at the November 12-16 meeting in San Diego, CA.
Yartsev is an associate professor of bioengineering, neuroscience, and the Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute. He uses bats as a model system to uncover the neural basis of complex behaviors such as navigation, vocal communication, and social behavior. As a neuroscientist and engineer, he develops novel tools to study neural activity as bats fly and interact, providing unique insight into the neuroscience of complex natural behaviors.
