"Bruno Breitmeyer"

Dr. Bruno Breitmeyer was born in Germany. Along with his family, he arrived in the United States in 1957 when he was 10 years old. For 11 years he lived in Illinois, where he did his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Psychology. For the next four years he lived in Palo Alto, California where he attended Stanford University for graduate studies in Psychology. While doing his dissertation research on mechanisms of motion perception, he participated in a seminar on visual masking, which eventually became a major research interest.

In 1972 Dr. Breitmeyer joined the Psychology faculty at the University of Houston. From 1973 to 1974 he worked in the Vision Laboratory of Bela Julesz at Bell Telephone Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey, and from 1976 to 1977 he collaborated with Lothar Spillmann at the Neurological Clinic of Freiburg University, Germany. Except for those two years, he has been at the University of Houston pursuing research in the area of visual cognition. Besides having published numerous research articles, he has authored or co-authored four published books, with a fifth currently in press.

When not attending to his research and academic duties, Dr. Breitmeyer enjoys traveling, reading, and most any other activity that allows him to explore varied types of geography and terrain. He is also an avid cyclist and enjoys a mixture of culture and entertainment ranging from movies, art exhibits readings, classical music, mellow jazz, and opera, to more earthy down-home Texas folk music, blues, and R&B. Up to now, Dr. Breitmeyer’s favorite foods are Italian, Thai and Vietnamese. His favorite colors: blue, white and earthy tan. His favorite part of the world: the Mediterranean. But Dr. Breitmeyer is, as ever, open to discovery and surprise.
