I write to report the sad news that Horace Barlow died on July 5th in
Cambridge. He had suffered a severe stroke 10 days earlier, never fully
regained consciousness, and died peacefully with his family close by.
Barlow was a pioneering thinker about the brain and perception. Over
seven decades, he made numerous influential discoveries about vision,
coding, and neural representation. His work and ideas inspired and
shaped much of modern visual science.
