Already a growing area of interest for industry-academic partnerships in biotechnology, Human Perception will explore the wide range of creative, rigorous and potentially lucrative research being done by many disciplines on virtually all the senses — vision, hearing, touch, smell, taste — as well as other ways of knowing. This program will also investigate subjects which are influenced by human perceptive capabilities, such as intelligence, memory, time and our ability to process information.

Positive popular response to biomedical research and development has made it clear that there is great interest in augmenting or replacing human capabilities and perception by artificial and/or technological means.

This area of inquiry encompasses biology, neurology, physiology, experimental and cognitive psychology, sociology, psychophysics and others, including as well important work done by artists and gifted amateurs — most of whom, to date, do not communicate with each other.
