This year, the Annual New York Neuropsychology Group's Distinguished Speaker series is renamed in honor of the late Dr. Arthur L. Benton, a giant in the field of neuropsychology. Dr. Benton was the first speaker in this annual lecture series when it was initiated in 1986. We are pleased that this year's lecture will be "An Insider's Guide to Arthur Benton," presented by Dr. Kerry Hamsher, a friend and colleague of Dr. Benton, and an influential neuropsychologist in his own right.

Dr. Hamsher writes,

"Arthur Benton was a scientist, a scholar, a clinician, and a professional with each of these roles informing the others. To make the best use of his place in the history of neuropsychology, he should be recognized not only for his contributions, but also for how he went about the things he chose to do. In this presentation, we will take a short journey following some of Dr. Benton's intellectual pursuits, with the goal of identifying values worthy of preservation that benefit the science and profession of neuropsychology."

We hope you will join us for this special occasion.

The Arthur L. Benton Annual Lecture is a joint meeting with the Psychology Section of the New York Academy of Sciences

Co-Sponsored by Stony Brook University
