Matt Lattal, Ph.D., associate professor of behavioral neuroscience, has received the 2013 Pavlovian Research Award from the Pavlovian Society.
According to its website, the Pavlovian Society is dedicated to the scientific study of behavior and promotion of interdisciplinary scientific communication. It recognizes the value of research at the molecular level but encourages members to stress the significance of their scientific observations to the whole functioning organism.
The Pavlovian Research Award was established by W. Horsley Gantt, and honors members (particularly younger members) of the Society for significant research accomplishments. Dr. Lattal was recognized specifically for his contributions to our understanding of learning and memory at both basic theoretical and neuroscientific levels.
Dr. Lattal is also President-Elect of the Society.
