University of Houston psychology professor honored with Lifetime Distinguished Career Award
Date:3/15/2013

H. Julia Hannay, the John and Rebecca Moores Professor of Psychology at the University of Houston (UH), received the Lifetime Distinguished Career Award from the International Neuropsychological Society (INS) at its 41st annual meeting in Waikoloa, Hawaii. The award recognizes her contributions to the field of neuropsychology.

"Few lifetime achievement awards have been given out by the society," said David J. Francis, a Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor and chair of the psychology department at UH. "Recognition of a lifetime record of contribution to a discipline by one's national and international peers is among the highest honors that a university professor can receive."

Hannay is a clinical neuropsychologist and a pioneer in the field of experimental neuropsychology, specializing in the assessment of cognitive functions in children and adults, as well as the cognitive and physiological effects of brain injury and the impact of rehabilitation. She directed the clinical neuropsychology training program at UH from 1987 to 2010, widely identified as a model for specialty training in psychology.

"What I have always found so remarkable about Julia as a scholar is the breadth of her scholarship," said Francis. "She has leveraged her great intellect, curiosity and mastery of basic and applied experimental methods in psychology to advance our understanding of the brain and its role in human cognition from consciousness to complex human abilities, and how these develop and become disordered by injury and disease across the lifespan. Julia is truly a unique and remarkable colleague and we are very fortunate to have her in the department of psychology at the University of Houston."

The author of a textbook on experimental neuropsychology, Hannay was also a co-author of a major reference book on neuropsychological assessment. Her research includes studying the neuropsychological consequences of traumatic brai
