  • Charles Gilbert to receive Scolnick Prize for visual perception work | Newswire
    award Its namesake Dr Edward M Scolnick was a longtime president of Merck Research Laboratories who is now at the Broad Institute Before joining the Rockefeller faculty in 1983 Gilbert began a longstanding collaboration with Torsten Wiesel who would become a Nobel Laureate and Rockefeller s President Together they described the lateral neuronal connections within the visual cortex which are central to our understanding of how this part of the brain functions Gilbert s work revealed that the cortex contains an extensive network of lateral connections that allow neurons to respond not just to the stimuli in their primary receptive fields but also to contextual information from other parts of the image This is central to the ability to perceive large scale features within the clutter of natural visual scenes Gilbert went on to discover that the growth of these horizontal connections and intricate changes in their connectivity play an important role in the brain s plasticity by allowing it to compensate for an inactive patch on the retina Similar circuits and mechanisms are thought to exist throughout the brain and to underlie its ability to recover after damage or disease The plasticity of these horizontal connections is also important for perceptual learning a form of brain plasticity that persists throughout life Gilbert has identified changes in the functional properties of cortical neurons that correlate with perceptual learning and showed that these changes are seen only during the performance of the specific learned task leading to a new view of cortical neurons function Gilbert received his M D and Ph D from Harvard Medical School in 1977 where he held an academic appointment until he joined Rockefeller as assistant professor and head of laboratory He became associate professor in 1985 and professor in 1991 and in 2004 was named Arthur

    neurons leads scientists to re envision vision As we age our eyes change shape that s why you see your eye doctor every year But new research from Rockefeller University suggests that how the brain interprets visual information also changes with experience And by studying the way in which nerve cells form connections between the eye and the brain researchers say that some of their basic assumptions about the nature
