John Bartlett Poster Session

John Richard Bartlett (1936-1978) was born in Ovid, Michigan. Graduating in 1959 from University of Michigan, he entered studies in Psychology, first with Abraham Black, and then with Woodburne Heron at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. In his PhD thesis work he was seeking clues to the neural basis of a fundamental visual perception, which is maintained despite gross and definable changes in retinal input. He spent a brief period with Mortimer Mishkin and Edward Evarts at the NIMH, and then received an NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship to continue work on the visual system at the Center for Brain Research at the University of Rochester. He became an Assistant Professor in the Center for Brain Research in 1974, and was a particularly imaginative, well-organized and dedicated teacher. The final work of his life was with microstimulation of striate cortex. He died unexpectedly at the age of 42. As I wrote shortly thereafter: his subtle humor, inventive kindnesses, unmitigated honesty, and superlative originality pass rarely in such measure through this world - his genius was unique.
