Blakemore has received many prizes for his research, which has been concerned with vision and the early development of the brain. He is also passionately committed to the public communication of science and was President of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1997-98. He is a frequent broadcaster on radio (including the 1976 BBC Reith Lectures) and television (including the 1982 Royal Institution Christmas lectures and The Mind Machine, a 13-part series on brain and mind). He has also written widely for the general public. In 1989, when he won the Michael Faraday Award for furtherance of the public understanding of science, The Royal Society described him as "one of Britain's most influential communicators of science".
