The WCBCT commemorates Neal E. Miller (1909-2002)

Dr. Neal Miller, a professor of psychology and neuroscience, proved to be a pioneering force in studies of motivation and, learning and reward. His influence in the areas of biofeedback and behavioral medicine was equally invaluable .

Neal Miller served as president of the American Psychological Association (1960-61), the Society for Neuroscience (1971-72 and founding member in 1969), the Academy of Behavioral Medicine (1978-79 and founding member) and the Biofeedback Society of America (1984).  In addition, he was honored with various awards and titles, including; the National Medal of Science, The millennial ANDP Award in Neuroscience Education, James Rowland Angell Professor of Psychology at Yale, Professor Emeritus at Rockefeller . Dr. Miller influenced a generation of psychologists and specifically behaviorally inclined psychotherapist.  It was already in 1950 that together with Dollard he argued (also cited In a letter he wrote to Joseph Wolpe, 1978) that: “psychotherapy as a process of emotional reeducation involving  the unlearning of maladaptive responses and the learning of more adaptive one.”
