Due to lingering compulsory retirement rules at Dalhousie University, I was formally retired from a full professor position in the department of psychology in 2007. As a retired professor, I currently hold adjunct appointments in psychology & neuroscience and philosophy at Dalhousie and maintain a research laboratory in the psychology department. 

I graduated from BMC Durfee High School in Fall River, Massachusetts in 1959. I did my undergraduate degree at Brown University in applied mathematics and completed my Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Wisconson. My Ph.D. thesis advisor was Dom Massaro, currently at University of California, Santa Cruz.  

I am married to Jolien Maughan from Soda Springs, Idaho, who I met in Sembach, Germany, when I was in the USAF. We have a son Tony who graduated from Mount Allison University in 1998 in philosophy. He subsequently got another undergraduate degree in Geology at St. Mary's University and and completed a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences at Dalhousie in 2015. He is now a practicing Field Geologist.
