6074 Bechtereva           Discovered 1968 Aug. 24 by T. M. Smirnova at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Named in honor of Natalia Petrovna Bechtereva (b. 1924), outstanding neurophysiologist, director of the Institute of Experimental Medicine in St. Petersburg for many years and founder of the Institute of the Human Brain of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Bechtereva laid the foundation for basic research into the physiology of healthy and diseased human brains. She discovered the cerebral mechanisms that optimize cognitive processes---the error detector. The theory of the brain's stable pathological state as the adaptation background for many chronic diseases was developed by Bechtereva, opening up new opportunities for their treatment. Name suggested by the Institute of the Human Brain and the Institute of Applied Astronomy.
