Academy honors 15 for major contributions to science
Date:1/16/2014

Supported by Pfizer Inc., the award recognizes a recent notable discovery by a young scientist and includes a medal and a $25,000 prize.

Kelin Whipple, professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, is the recipient of the G.K. Warren Prize. Whipple is being recognized for his studies on the role of fluvial incision as the key process linking climate, tectonics, and landscape evolution. Given to recognize noteworthy and distinguished contributions to fluviatile geology, the award recipient is presented with a $10,000 prize.

Also announced earlier this week, James L. McClelland and Elizabeth Shilin Spelke are the inaugural recipients of the NAS Prize in Psychological and Cognitive Sciences. McClelland, the Lucie Stern Professor in the Social Sciences and Director, Center for Mind, Brain, and Computation at Stanford University, is being honored for his role in formulating computational models to demonstrate the spread of activation through brain networks. This work has contributed to solving many puzzles in psychology and enhanced machine methods for perceiving patterns in language and visual scenes. Spelke, the Marshall L. Berkman Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, is being recognized for her outstanding work on the representation of number and of the physical and social world in the minds of infants, children and adults. Spelke's characterizations of the nature of the representational systems form the basis for formal models of the initial state of infants' minds and of the learning mechanisms that underlie the transition to adulthood. McClelland and Spelke will each receive a prize of $200,000. The prize is funded through a generous donation by Richard C. Atkinson and will be presented biennially for significant advances in the psychological and cognitive sciences with important implications for formal and systematic theory in these fields.
