American Academy of Arts and Sciences elects 3 UC San Diego professors
Date:4/26/2013

Three UC San Diego faculty members have been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences: neuroscientist Steven Allen Hillyard, linguist David M. Perlmutter and anthropologist Kathryn Ann Woolard.

They are among 186 American fellows and 12 foreign honorary members selected to the 2013 class, representing some of the world's top scholars, scientists, writers, artists, and civic, corporate and philanthropic leaders.

The professors' election brings UC San Diego's current membership in the academy to 110.

"The American Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of our nation's most prestigious honor societies, and we are proud to have three additional UC San Diego faculty elected as members," said UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. "The academy is composed of leaders, innovators and visionaries who are tackling some of the world's most pressing challenges. I look forward to their future successes and achievements, which will ultimately benefit us all."

Steven Hillyard, professor of neurosciences in the UC San Diego School of Medicine, received his Ph.D. in psychology from Yale University in 1968 and came to UC San Diego in that same year. He is widely recognized for his investigations into the neural bases of human perceptual and cognitive processes. By using noninvasive recording and neuroimaging, the Hillyard laboratory aims to identify and characterize spatiotemporal patterns of brain activity that underlie both normal and abnormal cognitive processes of perception, selective attention, stimulus recognition and consciousness. Hillyard's research has been supported by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. His honors include awards from Cognitive Neuroscience Society, the Society for Psychophysiological Research and the NIMH.

David Perlmutter is a professor emeritus of linguistics in the UC San Diego D
