Mark Stanton receives statewide award, elected Pavlovian Society president

Mark Stanton conducts research in behavioral neuroscience and focuses on the brain mechanisms of learning in normal development and in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

Mark Stanton, professor of psychological and brain sciences at the University of Delaware, has been named the 2015 Neuroscientist of the Year by the Delaware Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience.

The award was presented at the annual Delaware Neuroscience Research and Poster Symposium, held in December at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute

Also at the symposium, sponsored by the Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research, 38 graduate students, undergraduates and postdoctoral researchers from UD and other institutions presented posters.

Stanton leads the University’s Behavioral Neuroscience Program. His research, currently supported by two grants from the National Institutes of Health, focuses on studying the brain mechanisms of learning in normal development and in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

He has authored more than 125 research reports or reviews, including 11 publications since 2014.

In another recent honor, Stanton was elected president of the Pavlovian Society, which has a distinguished international membership. Founded in 1955 by Horsley Gantt, Ivan Pavlov’s first American student, the society is dedicated to the study of behavior and learning as a psychological and brain science. 

In announcing Stanton’s selection for the Delaware neuroscience honor, the Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research noted that he has been an extremely active and valuable member of the center, sitting on its internal advisory committee and serving as a scientific adviser and mentor to most of the researchers the center supports.

Undergraduate students who won awards for poster presentations at the symposium were Tyler McCann, UD, first place; Laurne Terasaki, UD, second place; and Patricia Pa, UD, and Xenia Davis, Delaware State University (DSU), tied for third place.

Graduate student winners were Jennifer Mantle, UD, first place; Karla Sanchez, DSU, and John Ruano-Salguero, UD, tied for second place; and Trisha Chakraborty UD, third place.
