Bio:

1939-2004. Son of Leonid G Voronin.

The scientific activity of Voronin was closely connected with the Brain Institute, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, in Moscow. Voronin arrived there in 1962, after he was graduated from the Biophysics Department of the Physical Faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University. At the above Institute, he worked for over 40 years, occupying positions from junior scientific associate up to head of the laboratory, Doctor of Biology, and Professor. Soon after the beginning of his scientific work at the Brain Institute, Voronin was sent on a scientific assignment to Kyiv, where he acquired precious experience in the laboratory of Platon Kostyuk. Leon always considered Kostyuk his main teacher in neuroscience.
Voronin was a world-famous scientist. He was one of the first neurophysiologists to use the technique of intracellular microelectrode recording in studies of cerebral cortex neurons in awake animals. He carried out pioneering studies on synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus. He was regarded as the first to apply the analysis of the quantum release of neurotransmitter to such objects as spontaneously active neurons of the central nervous system. He succeeded in obtaining convincing experimental proof of the hypothesis on the existence of an electrical feedback in the synapse proposed by Prof. Byzov. This is only a brief and incomplete list of Voronin’s scientific achievements. These achievements were highly regarded by the international scientific community. Voronin was elected an Academician of the European Academy of Sciences; only a few Russian scientists have been honored with such a title by this Academy.
