Prestigious International Champalimaud Vision Award to US Scientists
Date:6/13/2010

NEW YORK, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Champalimaud Foundation, one of the world's largest international scientific institutions, announced today that Dr. J. Anthony Movshon, Director of New York University's Center for Neural Studies, and Dr. William T. Newsome, Investigator at The Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Professor of Neurobiology at Stanford University, are the recipients of its 2010 Vision Award.  The prestigious Champalimaud Vision Award, often called the "Nobel Prize for Vision", comes with a $1.3 million prize, the largest monetary prize in the filed of vision and one of the largest scientific and humanitarian prizes in the world.

This year's Vision Award recognizes the work of both Dr. Movshon and Dr. Newsome over the last 30 years.  Working at times together and at other times separately, these outstanding researchers have had a major impact on scientists' understanding of how the brain reconstructs images, so that human beings can perceive, interpret and act in the world.  By building a bridge between psychophysics and human behavior on the one hand and the physiology of individual neurons and what they compute on the other, these two neuroscientists have shed ground-breaking light upon how the brain reconstructs visual images.

Leonor Beleza, President of The Champalimaud Foundation, said, "Visual perception starts with the eyes, but it happens in the brain.  Over a 30 year period, the work of Dr. Movshon and Dr. Newsome has taken this axiom to new scientific levels of understanding.  Because of these two outstanding neuroscientists, we now have a fundamental appreciation for the role of neurons in how we
