On September 27th John Duncan received his Heineken Prize 2012 from the Prince of Orange, crown prince of the Netherlands, as part of a week of celebrations and events. John becomes Laureate of the Dr. A.H. Heineken Prize for Cognitive Science for his remarkable innovative, multidisciplinary research into the relationships between psychology, behaviour and intelligence on the one hand and neural processes on the other. His concepts have become a cornerstone of cognitive neuroscience. A video portrait of John, made by Henk Visser/Heineken and shot in the garden at the CBU is available on Youtube here.
