Persuasive Intent
The process by which the brain decodes and recognizes a visual image is mostly unknown. Solving its mysteries is the essential first step toward the goal of restoring vision to people who are blind.

An international, multidisciplinary team of researchers led by Vincent A. Pieribone, professor of cellular and molecular physiology and of neuroscience at Yale School of Medicine, has received a four-year, multi-million-dollar contract from the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to take that step.
