Professor Robin Morris
Professor Robin Morris from King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) was recently awarded the Barbara Wilson Award from the British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of Neuropsychology.
The award recognises outstanding contributions to neuropsychology in the UK.
Professor Morris was selected on the basis of his internationally recognised research into the neuropsychology of different neurological disorders, including epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease and focal brain damage affecting memory and executive functioning.
The Award also recognises his contribution to the development of clinical neuropsychology in the UK and globally through his work with the International Neuropsychological Society.
Robin Morris is Professor of Neuropsychology at the IoP at King's as well Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist and Head of the Clinical Neuropsychology Department at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Professor Huw Williams, Chair of the BPS Division of Neuropsychology Awards Committee says: “Robin has been an inspirational figure in British and international neuropsychology. He has, by bringing scientific rigour to the understanding of clinical problems, made a remarkable contribution to his profession, and to people with neurological conditions. He has a curiosity for solving complex puzzles of mind and brain and an empathic concern for others. He is a very worthy recipient of the Barbara Wilson Award.”
Professor Morris says: “It is a great honour to receive this award, which reflects the values of Barbara Wilson, who for many years championed the combination of a scientific practitioner approach with a person orientated clinical practice to the huge benefit of patients with neuropsychological disabilities.”
