Description

In 1981, Harvard researchers David H. Hubel and Torsten N. Wiesel shared the Nobel Prize in Medicine with Roger W. Sperry of Caltech for their discoveries relating to information processing in visual systems. Dr. Hubel's Nobel lecture describing his work was delivered in Stockholm on December 8, 1981. This final draft of the lecture was used as the basis for its publication in Les Prix Nobel.

The Center for the History of Medicine at the Countway preserves the professional and personal papers of a number of Harvard's Nobel laureates, with significant collections from Drs. George Richards Minot, William Parry Murphy, Thomas Huckle Weller, and Joseph E. Murray, in physiology and medicine, and Dr. Bernard Lown and the other cofounders of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1985.
