Gordon Bower is recognized as one of the 100 most influential psychologists of the 20th century. His unparalleled contributions to cognitive and mathematical psychology garnered him the 2005 National Medal of Science, the nation’s highest honor for scientific achievement, as well as membership to the National Academy of Sciences. Bower lists several areas of expertise including animal learning, mathematical models, memory organization, and human associative memory, but it was his extensive work on emotion and cognition that led to the seminal discovery of mood-congruent recall. A Past President of APS (1991-1993), Gordon Bower is the A.R. Lang Professor of psychology, Emeritus, at Stanford University. He will be interviewed by APS President Walter Mischel.
