Dr Richard Latto, from the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society, has been awarded the inaugural British Psychological Society Lifetime Achievement Award.
The accolade was given jointly with Emeritus Professor John Radford from the University of East London for unusually significant and sustained contributions to psychology education over the course of their careers.
The citation reads: “Dr Richard Latto has made major contributions to the discipline of psychology, both at the University and nationally. He took the Liverpool department from a small, informally run grouping to a large, highly regarded department.”
His Medical Research Council-funded research has concentrated on visual processes, first in monkeys and later in humans, particularly ‘blindsight’ – the ability to respond to visual stimuli after cortical visual areas of the brain has been damaged without conscious awareness of these stimuli.
