He has written extensively on cerebral lateralization and on dyslexia. He has published more than 230 original articles, reviews, book chapters and books, and has lectured extensively locally, nationally and abroad on the general field of cognitive neurology. He has also been recognized for his work with several prizes, including the Pattison Prize in Neuroscience, the IPSEN Prize in Neural Plasticity, the American Academy of Neurology Decade of the Brain keynote speaker award, the Behavioral Neurology Society of the AAN's Lifetime Achievement Award, the International Dyslexia Association's Samuel T.
