Weldon Named APA Fellow
Douglas Weldon, the Stone Professor of Psychology, was recently elected to fellow status in the American Psychological Association (APA).
Weldon’s research has examined the behavioral neuroscience of the mammalian midbrain and the neuropharmacology of learning and memory in neonatal animals. Many of his publications on these topics have included Hamilton students as co-authors.
According to the APA, “Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon APA members who have shown evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state or regional level.”
Weldon served as the coordinator of science curriculum and facilities during the design and construction of the Taylor Science Center. As a participant in Project Kaleidoscope, he has made presentations to help faculty at other institutions as they entered the planning stages for their science facility projects.
