Curriculum Vitae


I began teaching at Fordham University in September of 1970. As of May 2015 I am fully retired after 45 years of teaching. I wrote Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychotherapy: Network Principles for a Unified Theory to improve our understanding of how cognition and affect interact to produce behavior. The chapter supplements and blogs listed below show that I continue to think and write about the topics covered in my book.

Contemporary research in neuroscience and psychological science is presently developing at a rapid rate. I continue to develop the proposed Bio-Psychology Explanatory System. This web page is devoted to keeping the book content current by providing chapter updates with version numbers to insure that my readers have the latest material that I can provide. It also contains a color version of Figure 5.6 that appears on page 277.

I represent important points and themes of my book in 77 blogs that are posted every Monday and Thursday on the SciTechConnect Elsevier site and automatically reposted on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychotherapy

Each blog indicates that it can be found on this site.
I provide the link to my Elsevier blog archive for accuracy and currency.

I appreciate your interest in my work and thank you for visiting this page.
