Nicole Rust named recipient of a 2021 Troland Research Award

Congratulations Nicole Rust, winner of a 2021 National Academy of Sciences’ Troland Research Award!
Two Troland Research Awards for significant advancements in experimental psychology and neuroscience are awarded annually by The National Academy of Sciences to recognize unusual achievement by early-career researchers.

By focusing on single unit activity in the neural signals of the primate visual system, her work has pushed the field forward both in providing new insights about how neural signals throughout the visual system inform specific capabilities, and about how the advancement of population-based analysis and computational tools can be applied to other brain areas and activities.
