Dear Mostofsky Family:
I want you to know that your husband/father/grandfather was one of the most influential individuals in my career. Our paths crossed many years ago -- 1972 to be exact -- when I was a sophomore at BU majoring in psychology. I took his class "intro to learning theory," and I became hooked on the study of human behavior. David opened an important door for me at Boston Children's Hospital, where I conducted a 2-year independent study under his tutelage. We published the results of the study, "Amplitude Changes in Components of the Auditory Evoked Potentials During a Reward-Associated Counting Task," in a journal in 1980, along with our colleague Dr. Yoichi Matsumiya. After BU, I entered medical school at Temple University in Philadelphia (my hometown) and I became a psychiatrist. My medical career would not have been possible had David not mentored me and immersed me in the world of clinical medicine as an undergraduate student. Regrettably, David and I did not stay in touch after I left Boston in 1975, but I will never forget his kindness and willingness to help anyone who needed it. May his memory be a blessing and comfort to all those he touched.
