It is with a great sadness that we announce that our esteemed mentor and colleague professor Angel Vassilev has passed away. Professor Vassilev was a prominent Bulgarian scientist in the field of vision. After obtaining a PhD at the Institute of Physiology “I.P. Pavlov” while working with professor V. D. Glezer, he was actively involved in the study of several key issues in the field of visual psychophysics and electrophysiology. He had a long and successful career as a Professor of Visual Physiology at the Institute of Physiology in Bulgaria where he founded his laboratory “Visual Information Processing” in 1978. He led a wide range of original research studying the latency of visual perception as well the latency of individual waves of visual evoked potentials at different spatial frequency, perception of orientation, flicker perimetry, the short wavelength cone pathway etc. In 1987, he organized the Tenth European Conference of Visual Perception in Varna, Bulgaria, giving the unique opportunity to young scientists to meet world-renowned scientists visiting Bulgaria for the first time.
With the passing of Professor Vassilev the Bulgarian and international academic community have lost a brilliant scientist. We lost a remarkable man who took a lifelong interest in the welfare, wellbeing and career development to the many colleagues who benefited from his tutelage.
