The father of neuropsychology
Throughout his life, Dr. Donald O. Hebb maintained a deep interest in the relationship between mind and brain. In 1949, he published his classic work The Organization of Behaviour, which served as a bridge between psychology and neuroscience. In it, Hebb theorized that cognitive processing was the result of connections between neuron assemblies. The book had an immediate impact and led Hebb to become known as “The Father of Neuropsychology.” Throughout his distinguished career, Hebb occupied many important offices in North American psychological associations, was a Fellow of the Royal Society of London, and was the recipient of over a dozen honorary degrees.
