Tributes have begun pouring in across the University of Oxford and the international neuroscience and psychology communities today in response to the news that Professor Glyn Humphreys passed away suddenly yesterday morning. Professor Humphreys was Watts Professor of Experimental Psychology and Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. He was a leading light of cognitive neuropsychology and received the British Psychological Society Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015 in recognition of his exceptional contributions to the field of psychology.

Responding to the news, Professor Alastair Buchan, Head of the Medical Sciences Division, said in a statement this morning: ‘I speak for the whole Division when I say we are all affected by this extremely sad news. Glyn was so young and so full of life and vitality. Together with his wife and colleague Jane Riddoch they brought both wisdom and experience to both Experimental Psychology and the John Radcliffe Hospital. He is going to be terribly missed. Our thoughts are with his wife Jane and their family.’
