NIH funds vision research by Mary Hayhoe
Posted: June 21, 2011
Mary Hayhoe, professor of psychology and vision researcher for the Center for Perceptual Systems, has received a $357,012 grant from the National Institutes of Health. This grant explores the use of vision and the control of eye movements in the context of natural, visually guided behavior. The development of virtual environments for natural tasks is important as it allows us to safely investigate situations that might be dangerous to test in the real world.
Title of project: "Vision in Natural Tasks"
