Annual Meeting of the Korean Society for Brain and Neural Sciences in Daegu,
Dr. Ninomiya received the ‘best poster award’ for his
presentation of ‘Prominent alpha-gamma phase-amplitude coupling underlies
motor-tic encoding in cerebro-basal ganglia-cerebella networks’.
The award recognizes the scientific advances that Dr. Ninomiya has made
using nonhuman primates to reveal the strong synchronization that occurs across
the primary motor cortex, the basal ganglia, and the cerebellum during motor
This work was undertaken as part of a research project run by Dr. Kevin
W. McCairn of the Korea Brain Research Institute, in collaboration with Prof.
