On 22 September, David Hunter Hubel died at his home in Lincoln, Massachusetts. He was 87. We have lost one of the great neuroscientists of the 20th century, whose work revealed the beautifully ordered activity of single neurons in the visual cortex and how these neurons might be assembled to ultimately produce vision. We have also lost the most innovative, enthusiastic, and witty person you could ever meet.
