The Impact of Dr. Geschwind’s Work on Neuropsychology
This session is devoted to the memory of Dr. Norman Geschwind, who was one of the three organizers of the main topic of brain and behavior. He had just completed his part of the program, which was this session on mechanisms of attention and attentional disorders, when he was struck by a massive myocardial infarction. In fact, I learned the sad news one Monday morning, and in the afternoon I received a letter from him giving the final version of the program for this session.
