The results of recent election are:
Stephen Wolfram for "Cellular automata"
Misha Tsodyks for "Short-term synaptic plasticity"
Gilles Laurent for "Models of olfactory system"
Laurenz Wiskott for "Slow feature analysis"
Ernst Hairer for "linear multistep method"
Simon Baron-Cohen for "Autism"
Charles Schroeder for "Current source density"
Stewart W. Wilson for "Animat"
Johannes J. Schneider for "Stochastic optimization"
Yosef Yarom for "Subthreshold oscillation"
John K. Tsotsos for "Visual attention"
