International Neuropsychological Society
We are deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of two luminaries in the field of neuropsychology, Dr. Mort Mishkin and Dr. Muriel Lezak. Dr. Mishkin was chief of the NIMH Laboratory of Neuropsychology and was the first intramural scientist to be awarded the National Medal of Science by Barak Obama in 2009. His work helped delineate sensory pathways and their connections with episodic and procedural memory. Dr. Lezak was a past INS President and author of the seminal text, Neuropsychological Assessment, which revolutionized training and test selection. Her work at Oregon Health & Science University focused on assessment and rehabilitation of brain injury.
Today we wake up to the news of Muriel Lezak’s passing. A huge loss to Neuropsychology.
I leave us the name and study of executive functions, those functions that enable us to have organized conduct, have a plan and direct our conduct towards the goal we want, make decisions taking into account all variables, adapt and flexible conduct according to the context etc. In short, the superior functions essential to conduct effective, creative and socially accepted behavior.
Among other things, she was president of the International Society of Neuropsychology. Her legacy is precious and infinite. Thank you for so much! Admiration and eternal pride.
