One of the most remarkable things about seeing is how effortless this complex task appears to be. This book provides a comprehensive overview of research on the myriad complexities of this task. Coverage includes such classic topics as color, spatial, and binocular vision, areas that have seen a recent explosion of new information such as motion vision, image formation and sampling, and areas where new tools have allowed a better investigation into processes (e.g. neural representation of shape, visual attention).
Seeing is a needed reference for researchers specializing in visual perception and is suitable for advance courses on vision.
Academic researchers in perception, and cognitive, physiological, and biological psychology.
