John Antrobus, Retired Professor, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in psychology.

Growing up in a religious family, Dr. Antrobus was compelled to become a scientist in order to find the evidence and question everything. He began his studies at the University of British Columbia, where he entered the field of experimental methods and earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1954. He later obtained a PhD from Columbia University in 1963. A licensed psychologist in New York, Dr. Antrobus spent the entirety of his professional career working at the City University of New York.

Dr. Antrobus excelled as a research associate at the university from 1967 to 1970, progressing from the designation of associate professor to a full professor from 1967 to 2005. Currently, he holds the title of the emeritus head of the PhD program in cognitive neuroscience at the City University of New York. Dr. Antrobus enjoyed finding the answers to the questions he had and worked primarily on how the brain switches between processing external sensory information and going back to processing things in memory.

Outside of his immediate professional responsibilities, Dr. Antrobus maintained affiliation with the American Psychological Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Society, the International Neurological Network Society and the Eastern Psychological Society. He is the author of “Cognition and Affect,” a co-author of “The Mind in Sleep: Psychology and Psychophysiology,” and an editor of “The Neuropsychology of Sleep and Dreaming.” As a testament to his success, Dr. Antrobus has been featured in the 50th edition of Who’s Who in America, the third edition of Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, the third edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, the 25th and 26th editions of Who’s Who in the East, and the 13th and 20th editions of Who’s Who in the World.
