Plaut Honored by National Academy of Sciences
Psychology Professor David C. Plaut is being honored this year by the National Academy of Sciences as one of two winners of the Troland Research Award. The award includes a prize of $50,000 to support research.
Plaut, who also teaches in the School of Computer Scence, is one of 18 people nationwide to be honored by the academy for outstanding scientific achievements. The awards will be presented April 28 in Washington, D.C., during the academy's 140th annual meeting.
Plaut's research uses computational models to investigate normal and disrupted cognitive processes in reading and language. He has studied the reading abilities of people with normal skills as well as those who have suffered brain damage, with the goal to develop better strategies for rehabilitation.
