MBI Researchers Awarded New Collaborative Grant

MBI Professors Ernst Niebur and Rudiger von der Heydt were awarded a new NIH research grant, in collaboration with Prof. Ralph Etienne-Cummings of the Department of Electrical and Chemical Engineering. The grant, titled “Neuronal mechanisms of perceptual organization in the primate visual system,” combines experimental and theoretical studies with neuromorphic engineering implementations to elucidate the interface between visual feature representations and attentive cognitive processes.
