Description

The D. G. Marquis Behavioral Neuroscience Award is given each year to recognize the best paper published in Behavioral Neuroscience®. Each author receives a plaque at the Business Meeting of Div. 6, held at the APA Annual Convention.

This award is selected by the editor and consulting editors of Behavioral Neuroscience.

Donald G. Marquis (1908-73) studied at Washington State Teachers College and Stanford University, where he received his undergraduate degree. He began his graduate work there and stayed at Stanford for two years as a fellow and an assistant in neuroanatomy. He moved to Yale University and completed his PhD in 1932, after which he was appointed National Research Council fellow in neurophysiology. After Ernest Hilgard left Yale, Marquis succeeded him first as an instructor, and later as chairman of the psychology department. He eventually moved to the University of Michigan where he served as chairman of the psychology department. His final position was in industrial management at MIT. Marquis was president of the American Psychological Association in 1947, chairman of the American Board of Examiners in Professional Psychology and influential in the creation of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. He was co-author with Ernest Hilgard of the extremely important book, Conditioning and Learning (1940), subsequently revised as Hilgard and Marquis' Conditioning and Learning (1961).
