New faculty in these areas will connect the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing and a department or school.
Study finds that the fusiform face area is active when blind people touch 3D models of faces.
New statistical model may help scientists understand how animals infer whether surroundings are novel or haven’t changed enough to be a new context.
Part of the visual cortex dedicated to recognizing objects appears predisposed to identifying words and letters, a study finds.
