FABBS Foundation Honors Edward Smith
Edward Smith, PhD, William B. Ransford Professor of Psychology and the Ransford Professor of Psychology (in Psychiatry) at Columbia University, and the Director of the Division of Cognitive Neuroscience at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, is featured in the FABBS Foundation's program which honors eminent, senior scientists.
Edward Smith is one of the world's leading cognitive psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists. He has conducted important research on working memory, word perception, semantic memory, concept use, reasoning and the neural basis of cognition. Ed's impact extends far beyond cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. He has been a bridge to almost all the other subdiscliplines of psychology—social, clinical, personality, developmental and education—and he has collaborated with colleagues in each of these fields.
