Patrick Haggard and Elisa Raffaella Ferre have been awarded by the BIAL foundation for the study "Vestibular updating and the continuity of awareness".

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, along with Emily Garrett and others, have created a new website called http://thescientific23.com/, as a result of the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award project. The Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award is designed to support the promotion of women in science, and this website is intended to shed light on the lives of scientists, their inspirations, and how studying science at school or university can lead to many different careers. We have interviewed a number of scientists and people who work in science-related fields, such as science policy, science journalism and science museums. Each interview consists of 23 questions submitted by teenagers. We hope the website can be used as a resource to provide secondary school students with an insight into different scientific professions, and in doing so perhaps encourage more young people to consider choosing science. To start with, there will be a handful of interviews, and more will be added each month or so for the next year.
