The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, which is managed by the University, is devoted both to creating new knowledge about the physics of plasmas -- ultrahot, charged gases -- and to developing practical solutions for the creation of fusion energy. Through the process of fusion, which is constantly occurring in the sun and other stars, energy is created when the nuclei of two lightweight atoms, such as those of hydrogen, combine in a plasma at very high temperatures. When this happens, a burst
Real-world scenes, such as cityscapes or mountain vistas, are cluttered and contain many different objects. The capacity of the visual system to process the information that is present in these scenes is rather limited, so the brain has developed neural mechanisms to select the information that is most relevant for guiding current behavior.
