Honoring Our Scientists
The FABBS Foundation’s “In Honor Of...” program recognizes eminent, senior scientists who have made important and lasting contributions to the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior.
Harold W. Stevenson, PhD
(1924 - 2005)
University of Michigan
Harold W. Stevenson was a psychologist whose work made conceptual and empirical contributions to our understanding of children's learning. Following the completion of his Ph.D. degree in psychology at Stanford (1951), his work on understanding the development of learning utilized experiments that typically used either animals or adults. His rigorous paradigms were employed to study learning with a focus on issues such as tangible vs. social rewards, effects of fear of failure, central and incidental learning, and visual display learning, especially television. His book, Children’s Learning (1972) became a leading source of information and his students became the leaders in pursuing our understanding of the developmental processes involved in early learning and cognition.
