2001: Robert Mellon


Hellenic Republic University of Crete


Dr. Robert Mellon taught behavior analysis in the Department of Psychology at the Hellenic Republic University of Crete beginning in 1996. He developed the first courses in Greece in experimental and applied behavior analysis. The International Development Grant helped equip the laboratory facilities for those courses and contributed to the purchase of two clear acrylic two-lever operant conditioning chambers suitable for rats, for which he hand-built two interfaces (from W. C. Palya) and two sound-attenuating chambers. For economy, he also built the home cages by hand. Additionally, he used a laptop microcomputer to download programs and upload data, which rendered transportation of a single box and interface for classroom demonstrations easy.
