This chapter presents an autobiography of Richard Held. Held and his colleagues studied the effects of sensory rearrangement and have modeled the adaptive processes that reduce, and sometimes eliminate, the induced errors. He pursued studies of the visual capacities of animal and human neonates so as to test the implications of plasticity for early development of spatial vision and motor control in accord with the following logic. His early years, career, and achievements are discussed.

Keywords:   spatial cortext, spatial vision, sensory rearrangement, adaptive processes, neonates, visual capacity, plasticity
