The Wisdom of the EyeBy
- David Miller, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A.
The Wisdom of the Eye is a survey of the major concepts underlying many of the basic sciences related to the human eye and visual brain in one volume, using anecdotes and a minimum of highly technical language to emphasize the important points. This book presents an up-to-date treatment on how the eye and visual system work to help us see, interpret what we see, and communicate what we feel. It also examines how this description of the visual system teaches us more about ourselves.
Neuroscientists, psychiatrists, cognitive scientists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and educated lay persons with an interest in popular science.
