The Distinguished Career Contributions Award (DCC)
The Distinguished Career Contributions Award (DCC) was established in 2012 and it is sponsored by the Fred Kavli Foundation from 2019-2023. This award honors senior cognitive neuroscientists for their sustained and distinguished career, including outstanding scientific contributions, leadership and mentoring in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
An annual call for nominations for the Fred Kavli Distinguished Career Contributions Award will be made to the membership of the society. The recipient of the prize will attend the annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society and deliver the Fred Kavli Distinguished Career Contributions lecture.
