Bennett I. Bertenthal is the James H. Rudy Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences and is also a member of the Cognitive Sciences Program and Neuroscience Program at Indiana University. From 2006-2010, he was dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University. Prior to this appointment, he was a Professor of Psychology at the University of Chicago, and also held appointments in the Computation Institute and Argonne National Laboratory. From 1996-1999, he was the assistant director of the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences directorate at the National Science Foundation, and was also responsible for the divisions of Science Statistics and International Cooperation. While the assistant director, he created two new programs in the Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences Division: Cognitive Neuroscience and Developmental and Learning Sciences. He is the author of over 150 publications on the development of perception and action, visual attention, multimodal communication, automatic vs. controlled decisions, cybersecurity, and science policy. Most of his current work focuses on the development of social attention and action understanding in infants, children, and adults. For the past few years, he has also been studying real-time decision making in risky digital environments. This research is multidisciplinary and integrates methods and models from cognitive science with multiple measures including psychophysical measures like response time, eye tracking, physiological measures like pupil dilation and heart rate variability, measures of brain activity (EEG/ERP), as well as computational modeling. During his career he has received numerous federal and private foundation grants, and served as the founding Director of the NSF funded Social Informatics Data Grid (SIDGrid). Dr. Bertenthal has lectured extensively on the social and behavioral sciences and science policy in the U.S. and abroad, and has served on multiple national advisory committees including the National Science and Technology Council subcommittees concerned with basic science and fundamental research on children. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Association for Psychological Science, and the American Psychological Association.
