Book Description

28 Nov 1996 0521498902 978-0521498906
This textbook is intended for use in a course for undergraduate students in biology, neuroscience or psychology who have had an introductory course on the structure and function of the nervous system. Its primary purpose is to provide a working vocabulary and knowledge of the biology of vision and to acquaint students with the major themes in biological vision research. Part I treats the eye as an image-forming organ and provides an overview of the projections from the retina to key visual structures of the brain. Part II examines the functions of the retina and its central projections in greater detail, building on the introductory material of Part I. Part III treats certain special topics in vision that require this detailed knowledge of the structure and properties of the retina and visual projections.

By Omar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Astute, clear, rigorous, detailed but not overwhelming, inspiring. Everything a good introductory text should be. It still is the best I have found even 13 years on.
