The New York Academy of Sciences

Join the NYU School of Continuing & Professional Studies, and the Office of the Dean of Sciences at NYU, as a panel of experts on the brain and cinema draw an interdisciplinary connection between film and neuroscience.


David Heeger, Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University, is joined by colleages Barbara Knappmyer of the NYU Computational Neuroimaging Laboratory, Nava Rubin of the NYU Center for Neural Science, Uri Hasson of the Human Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of Chicago, and Michael Grabowski, NYU Adjunct Instructor in Film, Video, and Broadcasting.

 

David J. Heeger received his PhD in computer science from the University of Pennsylvania. He was a postdoctoral fellow at MIT, a research scientist at the NASA-Ames Research Center, and an Associate Professor at Stanford before coming NYU. His research spans an interdisciplinary cross-section of engineering, psychology, and neuroscience, the current focus of which is to use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to quantitatively investigate the relationship between brain and behavior. He was awarded the David Marr Prize in computer vision in 1987, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in neuroscience in 1994, the Troland Award in psychology from the National Academy of Sciences in 2002, and the Margaret and Herman Sokol Faculty Award in the Sciences from New York University in 2006.
