Eve Marder is the Victor and Gwendolyn Beinfield Professor of Neuroscience and Head of the Division of Science at Brandeis University. Marder is a Past President of the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), and serves on the Council of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. Marder is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a Fellow of the Biophysical Society, and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She received the Miriam Salpeter Award from WIN, the W.F. Gerard Prize from the SfN, and the Miller Prize from the Society for Cognitive Neuroscience. Marder studies the dynamics of small neuronal networks, and her work was instrumental in demonstrating that neuronal circuits are not “hard-wired,” but are reconfigured by neuromodulators to produce a variety of outputs. She now studies the extent to which similar network performance can arise from different sets of network parameters.
