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

see things move about in the world.  Their ground-breaking work, taken together and individually, has laid the basis for continued research on how the brain and its processes impact vision and perception.  We are very proud to recognize Drs. Movshon and Newsome as the recipients of the 2010 Champalimaud Vision Award."

In his early studies, Dr. Movshon contributed to the understanding of how the brain represents the form and motion of objects, identifying for the first time neural circuits computing motion perception in the brain's middle temporal lobe (MT).  In a joint 1989 study, that is today considered a classic, Drs. Movshon and Newsome demonstrated that neurons in the MT visual area are responsible for perceptual judgments about direction.  By monitoring neuron responses, they could accurately predict decisions about perception, thus linking perception to specific activity within a neural circuit.  Dr. Newsome demonstrated that by altering the activity of neurons, perceptual performance could be either improved or diminished.

These studies proved that the activity of neurons in the brain's MT is necessary in order for human beings to see moving objects in the world.  By unequivocally demonstrating this fact, Drs. Movshon and Newsome paved the way for studies of the mental processes that link perception to action and for a greater understanding of the complex computations that underlie human decision-making and behavior.

The Champalimaud Vision Award

Established by The Champalimaud Foundation in 2006 and referred to as "the Nobel Prize for Vision" by the former President of India, APJ Kalam, the Vision Award has the support of the World Health Organization's (WHO) "VISION 2020:  The Right to Sight Initiative".  In order to provide maximum support for the fi
