Ernst Poeppel (Prof. Dr. Ernst Poeppel ML) is a German psychologist and neuroscientist who was born in 1940. He has studied psychology and biology in Freiburg and Munich, Germany, before finishing his academic education with PhD in 1968 in Innsbruck, Austria. He did research on temporal perception and circadian rhythms between 1964 and 1968 in the Max-Planck-Institute of Behavioral Physiology, and on neurophysiology of vision in 1969 and 1970 in Max-Planck-Institute of Psychiatry, Munich. From 1971 to 1973, he did research on neuropsychology of vision at the Department of Psychology and Brain Science at MIT, Cambridge, USA. At the same time, he was staff scientist at the Neuroscience Research Program (NRP). At this time, he described together with Richard Held and Douglas Frost a phenomenon of residual vision,[1] which became to be known as blindsight. Research of Ernst Poeppel has globalized in the last years, having moved now more towards the East compared to earlier orientation towards the West, like cooperation with scientists from the US. He has common projects with Chinese colleagues from Peking University (in particular with Yan Bao and Bin Zhou from the Department of Psychology and with Huisheng Chi and Xihong Wu from the Center of Speech and Hearing Research)[9] and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Lin Chen), with Japanese colleagues from Tokyo Institute of Technology (in particular Yoshihiro Miyake and Yumiko Muto),[10] with the Russian colleagues like Nikita Podvigin from St. Petersburg[11][12] and Victor Shklovsky from Moscow, and with the Polish neuroscientist Elsbieta Szelag from the Nencki Institute in Warsaw.[13][14][15] His political motivation for such international cooperations besides scientific interests is: “Scientists are Natural Ambassadors”.
