Neuropsychologist receives University of Houston's highest faculty honor
Date:4/27/2012

H. Julia Hannay, the John and Rebecca Moores Professor of Psychology, has earned the University of Houston (UH) 2012 Ester Farfel Award, a symbol of overall career excellence and the highest honor UH bestows on a faculty member. The annual award carries a cash prize of $10,000.

"The Farfel Award is a high honor recognizing the many roles that we may have as professionals, as mentors, teachers, scholar/researchers, clinicians and administrators reaching out to the local, national and international communities to different degrees in our varied careers," Hannay said. "The UH has afforded me the opportunity to strive for excellence in those roles in the multicultural environment that is so important to our future."

Hannay is the fifth female to receive the award since it began in 1979. Hannay is a clinical neuropsychologist and also a pioneer in the field of experimental neuropsychology, deriving paradigms for studying cerebral specialization and assessing cognitive functions in normally developing children and adults and in clinical populations, such as spina bifida, stroke and traumatic brain injury. She continues to work on issues pertaining to assessment of acute status in brain injury and long-term outcome hoping to spend time on rehabilitation research. "Dr. Hannay is a household name in our field. She has been one of the leaders of our field for the past three decades and has achieved all of the major successes being elected president of the International Neuropsychological Society, leading the landmark workshop that established training credentials in our field (the Houston Conference in 1997) and contributing to the book that is the 'bible' in our field," said Daniel Tranel, a professor in the department of neurology at the University of Iowa. Hannay is also a fellow of the American Psychological Association.

Hannay recognizes mentoring as one of her greatest professional achievements, having chaired many master's these
