Nicholas J. Wade received his BSc degree in psychology from the University of Edinburgh and his PhD from Monash University, Australia; his thesis was on vestibular-visual interaction. This was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung, at the Max-Planck-Institute for Behavioural Physiology, Germany where he carried out experiments using a human centrifuge. His subsequent academic career has been at Dundee University, where he is now Emeritus Professor and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. His research interests are in the history of vision research, binocular and motion perception, and the interplay between visual science and art.
Galina I. Rozhkova graduated from Moscow State Pedagogical Institute (MSPI, Physical Department) in 1960 and received her first PhD (in radiophysics) in 1963 and the second (in neurophysiology) in 1992. From 1963 she worked as senior scientist at the MSPI and from 1972 she is working at the Institute for Information Transmission Problems (Kharkevich Institute), Russian Academy of Sciences (IITP RAS, Moscow) rising to principal scientist in1992 and professor in 2000. Her earlier investigations were on signal processing in the simple nervous systems. Currently she is engaged in research on optometry, age dynamics of visual capabilities, binocular visual mechanisms, binocular dysfunctions, and application of interactive software for treating strabismus and amblyopia.
