Brain and Visual Perception

David H. Hubel

Oxford University Press

In the spring of 1959, nine families moved from Baltimore to Boston, to the Department of Pharmacology. Torsten Wiesel and David Hubel were demoted to the status of “Associates”. From the beginning, teaching was a major new item for the group. With Sanford Palay's group in neuroanatomy, they taught medical students for six weeks each spring. It was one of their best teaching experiences, for it was apparent that the course was the most popular in school. In 1964, John Salk wanted to recruit David. David, however, made it clear that he did not want to break his collaboration with Torsten. David gave three “Special Lectures” at University College, University of London, in the last week of January 1965. In 1968, Torsten and David went together to Japan, to the International Physiological Congress in Tokyo.
