Join us in congratulating Stanislas Dehaene!

Stanislas Dehaene, INSERM-Cognitive Neuroimaging Unit, NeuroSpin Center, received a 2024 Atkinson Prize in Psychological and Cognitive Sciences. 

Dehaene’s groundbreaking work examines the cognitive mechanisms and brain processes of mathematics, reading, language, and consciousness.

His experimental, computational, and theoretical research uses behavioral and brain-imaging techniques to probe how the human brain acquires new capacities through language and education. His work provides critical insight to understand the processes behind how we learn to read words and numbers.

Dehaene's studies continue to take neuroimaging methods into new territory, advance theories in cognitive science, and create bridges from the numerical and spatial reasoning of animals and infants to mathematical thinking at the highest levels.

The Atkinson Prize in Psychological and Cognitive Sciences (formerly the NAS Prize in Psychological and Cognitive Sciences) is presented to honor significant advances in the psychological and cognitive sciences with important implications for formal and systematic theory in these fields. Two prizes of $100,000 are presented biennially. The prize was established by Richard C. Atkinson in 2013.
