The Frith Prize is an Early Career Award and its purpose is to recognise experimental psychologists at the start of their career who have produced an exceptional body of work in their PhD thesis.
Dr Assem says:
It is truly a great honour to receive this recognition from the Experimental Psychology Society. I thank the award committee for recognising that a thesis heavy on brain anatomy provided a valuable contribution to understand how complex thoughts and behaviours are organised. The award also reflects the excellent level of training and support one receives at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences unit, especially from my supervisor and friend John Duncan.
Many congratulations to Moataz on this wonderful achievement!
