Glyn Humphreys sadly died suddenly on 14th January 2016. Glyn was an inspirational neuropsychologist, and president of the BNS from 2012-2014. He was also a very kind, caring and gentle person. We will miss him enormously. Our thoughts are with Jane and his family.

The British Neuropsychological Society (BNS) is a society which builds on a relationship between clinical investigations of patients with neuropsychological impairments and cognitive neuroscience.

We hold biannual meetings for cognitive neuroscientists, clinicians from the clinical neurosciences and allied health professionals; in order to present and discuss cutting-edge theory, neuroscience methods, and their translation into clinical practice.
