Abstract

Philp M. Groves earned an Early Career Award for his outstanding research and theoretical contributions to biological psychology. Groves's early work with Thompson on the neuronal mechanism of habituation and sensitization in the spinal cord and his later empirical and theoretical extensions of this work to the intact animal constitute a major advance in our understanding of the neuronal mechanisms underlying these simple forms of animal learning. His recent conceptualization of a new mechanism of action of amphetamine and the antipsychotic drugs illustrates a high degree of creativity, flexibility, and independence of thought. This work is a significant contribution to our knowledge of the synaptic mechanisms underlying the effects of amphetamine on the brain. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
