Floris de Lange is receiving the Heineken Young Scientists Award for Cognitive Science 2012 for his research on visual perception and motorial imagery.
Dr De Lange received his PhD cum laude at Radboud University Nijmegen. After rounding off his postdoctoral research abroad, he quickly built up a research group at that university’s Donders Institute. He now has some forty publications to his name and has received a number of research grants, including recently a “Top Talent” grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). In the words of the jury, Dr De Lange displays intellectual depth and an understanding of virtually all areas of cognition, making him one of the most talented cognitive scientists currently working.
