Many congratulations to Karalyn Patterson, who has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Karalyn is an international leader in the field of cognitive neuropsychology. She contributed much of her ground-breaking work in the areas of acquired dyslexia and semantic dementia during her 30 years as a programme leader at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit (formerly the Applied Psychology Unit).
Director Susan Gathercole: “Karalyn is a world-leading scientist whose contributions to cognitive neuropsychology have not only shaped theory in the field but also changed diagnostic practice. Here at the CBU we are very proud of her achievements and delighted that she has been honoured in this way”.
