Research on Visual Perception Wins 2012 Eppendorf & Science Prize

Dr Marlene R. Cohen

The US scientist, Marlene R. Cohen Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition at the University of Pittsburgh has won the 2012 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology

Dr. Cohen uses the response of groups of visual neurons to estimate which part of the visual world an animal is paying attention to at any given moment. Her approach provides a new way to study how our mental activity affects what we perceive and how cognitive processes such as attention are controlled.

The prize is sponsored by Eppendorf and the journal Science. This international US$25,000 prize is open to scientists of 35 years of age or younger who have made outstanding contributions to neurobiological research. The next deadline for applications is June 15, 2013.
