Kevin Connolly wins $75,000 grant for the study of perception

Kevin Connolly has won a $75,000 grant from the Cambridge New Directions in the Study of the Mind Project, for a project called “The
Interdisciplinary Study of Perceptual Learning.” Connolly’s project will bring together philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists
at international workshops to discuss perceptual learning—cases where people (often experts) perceive the world in an improved way due to
learning. Connolly will act as the Principal Investigator for the grant, with Adrienne Prettyman (Bryn Mawr College) acting as a Co-Investigator.
