A leading clinical neuropsychologist from the University of Liverpool has been presented with a top award for his work in epilepsy – four years after his wife, Professor Ann Jacoby, received the same honour.

The award was presented at the annual meeting of Epilepsy Action by the charity’s Chief Executive Philip Lee.

He has previously been awarded the British Psychological Society Lifetime Award for distinguished contribution to professional psychology in recognition of his services to epilepsy; and the International League Against Epilepsy Ambassador Award.
