Neal Elgar Miller (born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, August 3, 1909), was Professor Emeritus of Rockefeller University from 1981 until his death in 2002 and research affiliate at Yale University from 1985 to 2002. He was the first psychologist to receive the National Medal of Science, the nation's highest award for scientific achievement. On February 8, 1965, President Lyndon Johnson presented Miller with the medal, citing him for sustained and imaginative research on principles of learning and motivation and illuminating behavioral analysis of the effects of direct electrical stimulation on the brain.
