Jean Decety Receives International Neuropsychology Prize

Professor Jean Decety has been awarded the 2013 J.-L. Signoret Neuropsychology Prize awarded by the Fondation IPSEN in Paris. The international prize recognizes Decety’s scholarship on new understandings of empathy, affective processes, and moral decision-making in children and adults, as well as individuals who have dysfunctions in those social and emotional abilities, such as psychopaths.

Recipients of the prize are selected by an international jury that recognizes a scholar of recently published important research in the field of behavioral neurology. Decety is the Irving B. Harris Professor of Psychology and has a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry.
