Professor Angela Roberts and Professor Diego Pizzagalli accepting their award via video link

PDN Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience, Professor Angela Roberts, and her colleague Professor Diego Pizzagalli have been awarded the NEAR prize from Neuropsychopharmacology for the review, ‘Prefrontal Cortex and Depression’. The award is given by the Editors of Neuropsychopharmacology for the top review type article in 2023.

Professor Roberts said: 'It was a lovely surprise to receive this award and I am very grateful to the journal for awarding it to us. Diego Pizzagalli and I had been asked to write a review together on the prefrontal cortex and depression as part of a Special issue on Prefrontal Cortex in Neuropsychoharmacology, edited by Suzanne Haber and Trevor Robbins. Diego and I thoroughly enjoyed working together on the review, bringing together the clinical and preclinical research relevant to our understanding of depression and highlighting both the overlaps as well as the gaps. We learnt a lot from the process and are both very pleased that the review has been well received.'
