|Alfred Meyer Memorial Lecture|
Alfred Meyer (1895-1990) was a German-born British neuropathologist. As a prominent member of the British neuropathological Society his contribution is remembered in a biennial memorial lecture. His most significant work was on the anatomical aspects of frontal leucotomy, and the nature of the structural abnormalities in the brain associated with temporal-lobe epilepsy.
This lecture is delivered every second year by a distinguished speaker, invited to present the lecture at one of the annual meetings of the Society.
The Academic Committe presents nominations for agreement by the full BNS committee.
The lecturer is awarded a special medal which is engraved with their name and the date of the lecture.
