Father of Neuropsychology

Thanks to Mind Hacks for posting on a new site hosted by the The University of California, San Diego who have created an extensive on line archive of material related to the pioneering Russian neuropsychologist A.R. Luria, who is often considered the 'father' of the modern neuropsychology.

Luria was a pioneer in developing neuropsychological tests to pinpoint deficits in specific areas of the brain.  His original work forms the basis for much of the neuropsychological testing utilized today.

The site contains both audio and video information about the life and work of Professor Luria as well as a biography and links to articles that describe his work.

For those interested in the field of neuropsychology, it is a must visit.
