Abstract : Georgetown Institute for Cognitive and Computational Sciences Georgetown University Medical Center has established a Department of Neuroscience to provide the optimal academic structure to support the Georgetown Institute for Cognitive and Computational Science (GICCS). Several experts in the field were invited to participate in the planning, organization and recruitment of the chair and faculty for the Department of Neuroscience. The chair of this department is being actively recruited; final candidates have been identified and this process is entering its final stages. In addition, we have advertised for faculty positions for GICCS; 42 applications have been received to date. An administrator of the Institute has been hired. The scientific project entitled "Texture Analysis for Scene Segmentation" led by Dr. Robert S. Ledley has begun. This study will provide an important tool to explore various aspects of biological pattern recognition.
