ConocoPhillips Donates Over $1 Million to UH

Tedesco

Continuing its commitment to education at the University of Houston, ConocoPhillips is donating $1 million to UH’s growing Energy Research Park (ERP) and $125,000 to various engineering, science and business programs.

NIH to Fund UH Study on Visual Perception

Ogmen

For years, scientists have been exploring the large portions of the brain that correlate to vision.

Their efforts have led to a well-documented understanding of one portion of the visual system—the neural wiring that conveys information from each retina to early visual areas in the brain. However, understanding what happens later in the visual process is left unknown.

College Names Outstanding Engineering Students

Feliu

Students from two University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering departments were among those recognized at a luncheon on campus today honoring area engineering students’ high academic achievement.

Hosted by the Texas Society of Professional Engineers, the event paid tribute to the college’s Outstanding Junior, Joshua Kovitz, and Outstanding Senior, Rodrigo Feliu, as well as the successes of other engineering students from Rice and Praire View A&M universities.

UH Professors Publish Third Book on Visual Perception

Ogmen

Bruno Breitmeyer, professor of psychology at UH, and Haluk Ogmen, chair and professor of electrical & computer engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, have published their third book in two years on visual perception and consciousness, specifically on how the brain processes various visual stimuli at conscious and unconscious levels.

Professor Publishes Third Book Surrounding Visual Perception

Ogmen

Haluk Ogmen, chair and professor of electrical & computer engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, has published this third book in three years on the phenomena surrounding visual perception, specifically how and why the brain perceives various stimuli.

Neuro-Engineering, Vision Research Earn UH Professor NIH Appointment

Strides in vision research employing neuro-engineering and computational neuroscience earned one UH engineering professor a coveted spot in a National Institutes of Health (NIH) peer review group. Haluk Ogmen, department chair and professor of electrical and computer engineering at UH, has been invited to serve as a member of the NIH Central Visual Processing Study Section, Center for Scientific Review. His four-year term begins July 1, 2005.

First Graduate Research Conference Deemed a Success for ECE

Approximately 40 graduate students in the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering's electrical and computer engineering department (ECE) presented their work at the department’s first Graduate Research Conference held recently at the Texas Learning and Computation Center, more commonly known as “TLC2” (pronounced TLC-squared) in the Phillip Guthrie Hoffman building. Seventy-eight people attended the internal conference, including 51 graduate students and 27 faculty members.

'Images': Understanding Human Reactions Focus of UH Professor's Research

Haluk Ogmen, UH professor of electrical and computer engineering, discusses the UH Center for Neuro-Engineering & Cognitive Science in the latest edition of the 'Images' audio Web cast program. Main research of the center includes brain wave analysis; visual perception, how people see the world around them; and the potential of neuron- implants, small devices imbedded in the brain to record signals and activity.
