The honors just keep rolling in for UC Irvine scholar James L. McGaugh. This time, it's his own university's highest award: the UCI Medal. McGaugh is a founding faculty member of UC Irvine who came to the campus in 1964 to become chairman of its psychobiology department at the age of 32. He has also been dean of the School of Biological Sciences, vice chancellor and executive vice chancellor. Now 60, McGaugh is director of the university's Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory.

Two world-renowned brain researchers at UC Irvine have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest honors a scientist can achieve. Officials announced Tuesday that honors went to James McGaugh, chairman of the department of psychobiology and director of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory; and Ricardo Miledi, a distinguished professor of psychobiology and founder of UCI's Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology. Miledi was elected as a foreign associate of the academy, an honor bestowed on researchers who are not U.S. citizens.

Noted UC Irvine psychobiologist James L. McGaugh has been elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences, university officials announced this week. McGaugh, who already is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, is an internationally known expert on the effect of drugs on memory and how the brain stores information. His current research could impact treatment of memory disorders, including Alzheimer's disease.

Professor James McGaugh gets an "F" for identifying the Class of 2000 as the "first class of the 21st century" ("UCI Offers Class of 2000 Its 1st Lesson," Sept. 25). Just as the 1st century began with the year 1 and ended with the year 100, so will the 21st century--and the 3rd millennium--begin on the first day of the year 2001. The Class of 2000 will enjoy the unique distinction of being the last class of the 20th century. WILLIAM J. MCGEE Tustin

I find it ironic that UCI professor James McGaugh's name was featured on consecutive days in the Los Angeles Times. On April 23, a sign carried by an animal rights protester at UCI asked, "James McGaugh, What Have You Accomplished?" ("Marchers Protest UCI's Animal Tests"). That question was answered the next day in a story about Dr. McGaugh's election to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences ("Researcher Elected to American Academy") for his studies of how the brain learns and remembers--work with great potential in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

A UC Irvine research facility will be renamed "The Robert and Meryl Bonney Center for Neurobiology of Learning and Memory" in a formal ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the campus. The facility, which was founded in 1982, specializes in research on how the brain acquires, processes and stores information. The renaming is in honor of a $1-million trust fund that the Bonneys established earlier this year to support the center, which is directed by Dr. James McGaugh, professor of psychobiology.

How do drugs and hormones affect memory? A UC Irvine research specialist is using an $860,000 grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to study this question. Dr. James McGaugh, chairman of the department of psychobiology and director of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, will test the effects on memory of drugs injected into specific brain sites of test animals.
