primate color vision: color appearance across illuminants in real and
simulated conditions, geometry of perceptual color space, color and
contrast processing by retinal ganglion cells, and decoding of color
appearance from population responses of cortical cells.  The neural
projects will be done in collaboration with Barry Lee and Jose-Manuel
Alonso.  A Ph.D. in a vision/perception related field is required.  Some
mathematical maturity, computer-graphics experience, and familiarity with
