Papers of Michael A. Arbib, Fletcher Jones Professor of Computer Science; University Professor; Professor of Biological Sciences,
Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Neuroscience and Psychology; Director, USC Human Brain Project. Prof. Arbib
has based his career on the argument that we can learn much about machines from studying brains, and much about brains from
studying machines. He has thus always worked for an interdisciplinary environment in which computer scientists and engineers
can talk to neuroscientists and cognitive scientists. His primary research focus is on the coordination of perception and
Arbib's papers document his research as a theoretical neuroscientist and a computer scientist, as well as his work as a professor
at USC. Included in the collection are his correspondence with colleagues in the field and publishers; articles and manuscript
materials; and material pertaining to the Human Brain Project which Arbib conducted in the late 1990s.
Michael A. Arbib has been Emeritus as University Professor, Fletcher Jones Professor of computer science, and professor of
biological sciences, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, neuroscience and psychology at the University of Southern
California since 2016. He currently is an adjunct professor of psychology at the University of California at San Diego where
he also explores the possible roles of neuroscience in the architecture of the built environment.
