‘Nosy’ and Observant, a Neuroscientist Continues Her Memorable Career at 93

“Psychology students who read about Brenda Milner’s seminal work with amnesia patients nearly 60 years ago might not suspect that she is, at 93, still engaged full time in research and teaching. Nor that last week, in New York, she would be picking up a major award, the Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, which honors female researchers who have made extraordinary contributions to the biomedical sciences. She is the eighth recipient of the prize since its creation by Paul Greengard, a neuroscientist at Rockefeller University, who used his own funds, including his award for winning the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, along with contributions from his university and other donors.”
