Dr. Brenda Milner was promoted to a Companion, the highest honour within the Order and one of only two Companions named in this announcement.

Dr. Milner's current research in the Cognitive Neuroscience Group at the MNI, focuses on the specialization of the brain hemispheres. She and her colleagues are using sophisticated brain imaging technologies to examine differences between the right and left hemispheres. Dr. Milner is particularly interested in the role of the right hemisphere in remembering the location of objects.

Dr. Milner is a fellow of the Royal Society and a prestigious foreign associate of the National Academy of Sciences (USA) - one of only 14 from Canada.
