Lankan Psychologist nominated for Grawemeyer Award for 5th time

Entering the list of top 20 nominees for the fifth time for the Grawemeyer Award in Psychology, Dr. K.L. Senerath Dayathilake believes that Sri Lanka is capable of producing more potential researchers if opportunities and facilities are provided.

He was nominated for the Grawemeyer Award in Psychology in 2001, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. The Grawemeyer Award in Psychology is awarded by the University of Louisville in the USA.

Dr. Dayathilake, a cognitive psychologist has been researching on the human mind and its behaviour for more than 15 years and is a member of the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO).

"I always find interest in evolution of intelligence and continue researching on the concept 'Nature of Human Intelligence'. The entire theses submitted are based on this concept but developing every year," he said.

Several experiments are taking place in the field of neuro-science and he is more than willing to contribute his knowledge to the country, he said though regretting the limited opportunities for these kinds of experiments and the lack of resources and facilities.

Dr. Dayathilake was recently awarded the honorary title 'Lankabhimani'.
