Montreal,- January 16, 2004 - Dr. Brenda Milner will receive the 2004 Award in the Neurosciences from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) headquartered in Washington, DC. The $25,000 US prize is awarded every three years in recognition of extraordinary contributions to progress in the fields of neuroscience. Dr. Milner is the Dorothy J.
