GSA confers 2007 Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award to USC's Mather
Date:11/13/2007

The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) has chosen the University of Southern California's Mara Mather as the 2007 recipient of the Richard Kalish Innovative Publication Award. This distinguished honor recognizes insightful and innovative publications on aging and life course development in the behavioral and social sciences.

The award presentation will take place at GSA's 60th Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held from November 16th - 20th, 2007 in San Francisco, CA. The actual conferral will occur on Sunday the 18th at 11:45 a.m. at the Hilton San Francisco. The convention is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals who specialize in the study of the aging process.

Mather was chosen for her paper "Goal-Directed Memory: The Role of Cognitive Control in Older Adults' Emotional Memory," which first appeared in the journal Psychology and Aging in December 2005. A central theme of her work is the understanding that memory is not an exact photograph of what occurred.

The Kalish Award is underwritten by Baywood Publishing Company, with whom Kalish was long associated. Any empirical or conceptual publication that represents state-of-the-art thinking in aging and life course development is eligible for the award, provided it is in English and was published in the last three years.
