Dr. Hendrik Muller Prize for Peter Hagoort

Peter Hagoort was awarded the 2003 Dr. Hendrik Muller Prize.

According to the Academy, Professor Hagoort (1954), Director of the F.C. Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging at Nijmegen (which opened last year), plays an important role in a relatively new branch of science. The discipline of cognitive neuroscience emerged with the arrival of such techniques as fMRI, which makes it possible to study 'the brain in action'.
