June 30 is the deadline for the $10k Brain Corporation Prize in Computational Neuroscience. 

The prize will be given to the best article in computational neuroscience   http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Encyclopedia_of_computational_neuroscience
determined by the number of Google +1 votes. 

The award will be given during the CNS meeting in July in Paris.

Currently, the leaders are:

http://www.scholarpedia.org/article/Homeostatic_Regulation_of_Neuronal_Excitability
Google+ count:	122

A typical time to get first 100 votes is just a few weeks, so people joining in May still have a chance of winning the competition.

In order to reserve an article in Scholarpedia for this competition, students and post-docs will need to team up with established experts on the topic they choose to cover.
