Alexander Huk ’96

BOX_huk_alexander_sized.jpgAlexander Huk ’96 received a National Science Foundation Career award in 2008 for his research on the neural basis of the perception of motion through depth. The award supports junior faculty who exemplify the integration of education and research. Huk’s research seeks to understand how the nervous system processes information and how those signals give rise to perceptual and cognitive experiences. The experiments funded by the award aim to identify which pieces of binocular information are used to represent three-dimensional motion. Huk is an assistant professor of neurobiology and psychology at the University of Texas–Austin, where he is also a member of the Center for Perceptual Systems and the Institute for Neuroscience. Previously, he was a senior research fellow at the University of Washington–Seattle.
