Eckstein awarded NAS Troland Research Award

Miguel P. Eckstein was presented the 2008 Troland Research Award by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) 27 April, in honor of his achievements in experimental psychology. The NAS awards honor 13 individuals annually for their extraordinary scientific achievements in areas of biology, chemistry, solar physics, ecology, mathematics, oceanography, paleontology, social sciences, and psychology. Eckstein earned the Troland award for his "sophisticated theoretical analysis and modeling that address fundamental issues in perception and cognition and their application to the practical problems of medical imaging," the NAS announcement said.

Eckstein is an SPIE Member, has served as the chair of the Human Performance, Image Perception, and Technology Assessment conference of the SPIE Medical Imaging symposium, and won the SPIE Image Perception Cum Laude Award.
