Abstract

Philip Teitelbaum was presented a Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award for his highly original and creative concepts of how the brain works to yield behavior, based on the soundest empirical data collected in his own ingenious experiments. A common thread of ideas runs through his work ranging from hypothalamic control of feeding and motivation, and their sensory control, to the operant control of reflexes and the nature of voluntary response. All are tied together in a conceptualization of the hierarchical organization of nervous system structure and function, revealed in phylogeny, ontogeny, and the effects of brain lesions, and integrating sensory and motor control mechanisms operating at all levels of complexity.
