Emeritus Prof. Dr. Odmar Neumann

*13. Juli 1942 †25. Februar 2013

Mit tiefer Bestürzung und großem Bedauern müssen wir mitteilen, dass Prof. Dr. Odmar Neumann, der diese Arbeitseinheit "Allgemeine Psychologie I" (Neurokognitive Psychologie) viele Jahre leitete, am 25. Februar in Bielefeld verstarb. Sein wissenschaftliches Wirken hat nicht nur einen entscheidenden und bleibenden Beitrag zur internationalen Aufmerksamkeitsforschung hinterlassen, sondern es liefert auch für uns, die aktuelle Arbeitseinheit, den Ansporn dieses Erbe, den Bielefelder "attention-for-action approach", in seinem Geist weiter zu entwickeln.

Im Namen der Allgemeinen Psychologie I,

Prof. Dr. Werner Schneider

 

With great sorrow and regret we have to announce that Prof. Dr. Odmar Neumann, who for many years was head of this unit "Allgemeine Psychologie I" (Neurokognitive Psychologie), died on February 25, 2013, in Bielefeld. His scientific work not only left an important and lasting contribution to international attention research, but motivates us as the current members of the unit to further develop this heritage, the Bielefeld "attention-for-action approach", according to his spirit.

On behalf of the members of "Allgemeine Psychologie I"

Prof. Dr. Werner Schneider
