Brenda Milner, MD, has had an extraordinary influence on the shape of neuroscience and on the work of scientists around the world. The origins of modern cognitive neuroscience of memory can be traced directly to her rigorous and imaginative studies. Milner’s research focuses on cognitive function in the frontal and temporal lobes of humans. She uses positron emission tomography (PET) and functional MRI to identify the brain regions involved in language processing in both unilingual and bilingual volunteer control subjects as well as in patients with brain lesions that are in close proximity to areas critical for language.

In another series of PET studies, she has sought to delineate further the role of the right hippocampal region in memory for the spatial location of objects.
