Gordon G. Gallup, Jr., Ph.D.

Gordon G. Gallup, Jr. is a psychologist currently working at the University at Albany's Psychology department in the biopsychology program area. He received his Ph.D. from Washington State University in 1968. He is most famous for developing the mirror test in 1970, which gauges self-awareness in animals and humans.

Gallup's article entitled "Does Semen Have Antidepressant Properties?"[1] caused quite a stir in the media[2] when it was published in 2002. Gallup commented, "I want to make it clear that we are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms, clearly an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease would more than offset any advantageous psychological effects of semen."
