During 1999-2000, Adrainne Seiffert was supported by this grant. She was in her last year of graduate studies. David Whitney, previously supported by this grant, received his own independent DoD funding but continued work on the projects he had begun under AASERT support. Susan Mumnga completed a project during the year extending our work on object recognition. She received no funding but did participate in the grant supported projects, learning how to program and conduct experiments. In our model, recognition starts with an intial, crude 2-D match that selects a best protoype to explain the image data. David Whitney has extended this priming of gender recognition in images. Susan Murunga attempted to demonstrate the existene of this early prototype using classical conditioning.
