He is the recipient of many awards (including the Grawemeyer Award, 2014; the Honda Prize, 2010; the Asturias Prize in Science and Technology, 2005; and the Signoret Prize, 2004, which he shared with his wife Hanna Damasio).

He has been named “Highly Cited Researcher” by the Institute for Scientific Information and also holds Honorary Doctorates from several Universities.
