Gary G. Brannigan
Gary Brannigan's fascination with how children learn could be said to have originated with his own first day at St. Charles School in Bridgeport in the early 1950s. The professor of psychology at SUNY-Plattsburgh and recent recipient of the State University of New York's Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities is, unquestionably, one of the world's experts on the Bender-Gestalt test, which is used around the world in educational, psychological, and neurological assessments of children and adults.
Over the course of his career, Dr. Brannigan has published 14 books and countless academic articles, and has spent five years as the director of the Psychological Services Clinic at the Plattsburgh campus. He has served on the boards of four academic journals, and overseen the research of generations of graduate students.
