Congratulations to Karalyn Patterson on election to Royal Society
Congratulations to Dr Karalyn Patterson from the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit and Clinical Neurosciences on being elected to the Royal Society.
Karalyn Patterson was one of the prime initiators of the field of cognitive neuropsychology. The different approaches she has developed to study brain based disorders of language and memory have brought great rigour to the field, and have allowed stringent tests of different theories. She is one of the very few people in the world able to adopt a truly multi-disciplinary approach including computational modelling, behavioural observation, neuropsychological testing and functional neuroimaging. Consequently, her work has led to a better understanding of how language and memory are organised in the brain, and how they unravel in Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia.
