Dr. David Hubel has been described as one of the major medical scientists of the latter twentieth century. In 1981, Dr. Hubel was awarded a Nobel Prize for his pioneering research into how the brain processes visual information. His discoveries have provided a greater understanding of brain development in the critical early stages of human development following birth. Dr. Hubel's research has also had important implications in clinical medicine by emphasizing the importance of correcting, at an early age, strabismus - a condition in which the eyes are crossed.
