Carnegie Mellon's Marcel Just to receive Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award
Date:7/9/2012

PITTSBURGHCarnegie Mellon University's Marcel Just a leading neuroscientist who focuses on how language comprehension and problem-solving emerges from brain processes has been selected to receive the Society for Text and Discourse Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award.

The society's most prestigious award is given to honor scholars who make outstanding scientific contributions to the study of discourse processing and text analysis, and to recognize excellence in research, mentoring and advancements to the field. Previous award winners include the University of Colorado's Walter Kintsch, Stanford University's Herb Clark and the University of Glasgow's Tony Sanford and Simon Garrod.

"Marcel Just has made significant advancements towards our understanding of how the brain processes information," said Jane Oakhill, chair of the award committee.

Just, the D.O. Hebb Professor of Psychology within Carnegie Mellon's Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences and director of the university's Center for Cognitive Brain Imaging, will receive the award at the society's annual meeting in Montreal, July 10-12. On Wednesday, July 11, Just, a Montreal native, will give a keynote lecture on "Changing Brains for Changing Times." In the talk, he will discuss how brain capabilities have been changed as a result of cultural, educational, work-habit and epigenetic influences and how these brain-imaging findings foreshadow possibilities for shaping the brains of the future.

"Marcel Just is enormously deserving of this award," said John Lehoczky, dean of the Dietrich College. "It underscores the value that his research has had to cognitive science and psycholinguistics and its impact on important societal issues such as autism and dyslexia. I expect that he will continue to have a major impact on these fields for many years to come."

A pioneer in psycholinguistic research, Just has consistently used cutting-edge technolog
