110-year anniversary of Alexander R. Luria – the founder of Russian neuropsychology


He had a very wide range of interests. In the course of research and development of the ideas of cultural-historical psychology with A.N.Leontyev and L.S.Vygotskiy, he found proof of the concept of the structure of higher psychic functions through analysis of cases of brain damage.  

The next issue of “Cultural-historical psychology” (№2/2012) will contain A.R.Luria’s biography, his private correspondence with his wife, and other articles devoted to his anniversary.
