Sadly, one of the most influential developmental psychologists of recent times Annette Karmiloff-Smith died just before Christmas.
Born in 1938, Annette obtained her doctorate in Geneva under the supervision of Jean Piaget.
Her work took her to the Institute of Child Health at UCL, and eventually to Birkbeck where she was a Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development.
