  • Joel Cohen and Torsten Wiesel receive Golden Goose Awards for research with unexpected benefits | Newswire
    research is focused on both human and nonhuman populations His lab develops concepts useful for understanding ensemble properties population characteristics such as birth and death rates that describe groups but not individuals Cohen has been on Rockefeller s faculty since 1975 and has been a professor of earth and environmental sciences at Columbia University since 1995 Wiesel a neurophysiologist and his collaborator David Hubel who died in September 2013 were honored for their discoveries as to how the mammalian brain processes visual information and that system s ability to rewire itself after birth Their 20 year collaboration began at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and continued at Harvard Medical School A simple accident lead to their breakthroughs While monitoring neurons in previously unstudied parts of cats brains the researchers showed the animals small spots of light or dots projected onto a screen One of the researchers pushed a glass slide a little too far This brought its edge into view on the projector and triggering a surprising burst of activity in these neurons This lead to the discovery that particular visual neurons in cats and monkeys respond to lines and contours with specific orientations Their work over time accumulated to form a functional map of neurons that process the input from both eyes Later Wiesel and Hubel demonstrated that although the brain at birth contains all the necessary neural connections to process visual information it can rewire itself in response to a blockage specifically the loss of sight in one eye This ability known as neuroplasticity appeared to fade with age With this knowledge doctors began treating children born with cataracts as early as possible with much better outcomes For their work on visual processing Wiesel and Hubel shared the Nobel Prize in 1981 Wiesel came to Rockefeller
