Loyola press release - August 31, 2006

(New Orleans) -- Evan Zucker, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Loyola University New Orleans, was recently elected to Fellow status in Division 6, the Behavioral Neuroscience and Comparative Psychology division of the American Psychological Association. He was awarded this rare prestigious honor on the basis of evaluated evidence of outstanding contributions in the fields of behavioral neuroscience and comparative psychology.

Fellow status, which is judged and determined by division members, is granted to members who have shown a substantial scholarly contribution to their field of study. Division 6 members of the American Psychological Association are devoted to studying the biology of behavior and its relation to perception, learning, memory, cognition, motivation, and emotion. Behavioral neuroscientists study the brain in relation to behavior, its evolution, functions, abnormalities, and repair, as well as its interactions with the immune system, cardiovascular system, and energy regulation systems. Comparative psychologists study the behavior of humans and other animals, with a special eye on similarities and differences that may shed light on evolutionary and developmental processes.
