The Humphreys and Riddoch Prize

The Humphreys & Riddoch prize is awarded to postgraduate students with an interest in neuropsychology. 

The award is named after Professors Glyn Humphreys and Jane Riddoch, eminent neuropsychologists who have, over many years, supported young people in the development of their research careers in neuropsychology. 

In the spirit of Humphreys and Riddoch, the BNS wishes to encourage young researchers in the field of neuropsychology. The BNS offers the chance for early- stage researchers to present their work at the BNS national neuropsychology meeting and to receive formal recognition of their contribution to neuropsychology. Postgraduate students submitting to a BNS conference can be asked to be considered.


  • The prize is open to people undertaking both clinical (e.g., DClinPsy) and academic (e.g., MPhil, PhD) degrees and those who are undertaking supervised research while working as Assistant Psychologists.
  • Students may be at an early stage of their research before the research study is concluded or published.
  • Research work, which may be quantitative or qualitative, should be directly relevant or potentially relevant to the field of neuropsychology.
