Lifetime Award goes to memory expert

Professor Alan Baddeley FRS CBE from the University of York has received this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society’s Research Board.

He is known for his work on working memory, and has particular interests in neuropsychology and the practical application of cognitive psychology. Professor Baddeley spoke in depth about his career in a Psychologist interview with Lance Workman last year.

The Reseach Board makes this award each year to a psychologist with an outstanding record of personal achievements who has also made significant contributions to the advancement of psychological knowledge.

The award confers Life Membership of the Society, £1000 to be spent on furthering an area of research of the nominee's choice, and a commemorative certificate presented at the Society's Annual Conference.

There will be an article about Professor Baddeley and his work in a future issue of the Society's monthly magazine The Psychologist.
