Western, Emory neuroscientists to “break new ground” with $5.1M donation


Neuroscientists from Western University and the Atlanta-based Emory University have received $5.1M from the Azraieli Foundation to “break new ground” in motor neuroscience. Western researcher Andrew Pruszynski will use the funding to create a consortium of neuroscientists whose research would benefit from the use of electrodes developed at Emory. The researchers’ feedback would also be used to help refine the electrodes. “The Foundation’s support will help seed numerous research activities across the country, enabling scientists to make substantial gains in motor neuroscience,” said Pruszynski.
