Professor Cynthia Moss (Psychology/ISR) has won a $200K Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). The DURIP award will be used to purchase a Vicon real-time optical tracking system and multichannel acquisition processor system (MAP) for Moss’s study of the role of bat wing hairs in flutterig membrane, and also to study somatosensory signang flight control. The MAP system will allow Moss and her research team to follow single neurons over time, before and after epilation of the winling.
