Friederike Range: Award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions to Psychology
American Psychologist, v67 n8 p638-640 Nov 2012
Presents a short biography of one of the winners of the American Psychological Association's Award for Distinguished Scientific Early Career Contributions to Psychology. The 2012 winner is Friederike Range for outstanding contributions to the understanding of the complex social minds of nonhuman animals. Through ingenious experimental approaches, Range has opened windows into the social cognition of monkeys, ravens, dogs, and wolves. With dogs, she was the first to apply the touch screen paradigm, and she has conducted groundbreaking studies on selective imitation and inequity avoidance. By co-founding new research facilities, such as the Clever Dog Lab and the Wolf Science Center, she has created novel opportunities for future scientific developments and for a new generation of young researchers. Range's Award citation and a selected bibliography are also presented here.
