"Pioneer Visual Neuroscience: A Festschrift for Naomi Weisstein" was published this month and edited by faculty member Dr. James M. Brown, Dr. Weisstein's last graduate student at the University of Buffalo. This book honors Naomi Weisstein’s foreshortened span of work published from 1964 to 1992. Naomi Weisstein was a pioneer in the areas we now call visual neuroscience, visual cognition, and cognitive neuroscience. Her enthusiastic pursuit of the mind was infectious, inspiring many others to take up the challenge. Despite her time as an active researcher being cut short, Weisstein’s impact was far reaching and long lasting, and many of her ideas and insights foreshadowed today’s active areas of inquiry into the inner workings of the mind. Great work Dr. Brown!
