About Dr. Leslie G. Ungerleider

Dr. Ungerleider was a pioneering neuroscientist whose work spanning five decades, ranged from single cell recordings and anatomical tracings in monkeys to PET and fMRI studies in humans, from sensory processing in V1 to attentional modulation in prefrontal and parietal cortex, and from low-level visual perceptual learning to high-level social cognition.
