Product Description

Review

From the book reviews:

“This book takes the novel approach of considering the geometry of image processing by the visual cortex system of the brain. … This book is an essential read for anyone conducting serious research in the field of neurogeometry of visual perception.” (R. Goldberg, Computing Reviews, August, 2014)

From the Back Cover

This book is devoted to the study of the functional architecture of the visual cortex. Its geometrical structure is the differential geometry of the connectivity between neural cells. This connectivity is building and  shaping the hidden brain structures underlying visual perception. The story of the problem runs over the last 30 years, since the discovery of Hubel and Wiesel of the modular structure of the primary visual cortex, and slowly cams towards a theoretical understanding of the experimental data on what we now know as functional architecture of the primary visual cortex.
Experimental data comes from several domains:  neurophysiology, phenomenology of perception and neurocognitive imaging. Imaging techniques like functional MRI and diffusion tensor MRI allow to deepen the study of cortical structures.  Due to this variety of experimental data, neuromathematematics deals with modelling  both cortical structures and perceptual spaces.
From the mathematical point of view, neuromathematical call for new instruments of pure mathematics: sub-Riemannian geometry models horizontal connectivity, harmonic analysis in non commutative groups allows to understand pinwheels structure, as well as non-linear dimensionality reduction is at the base of many neural morphologies and  possibly of the emergence of  perceptual units. But  at the center of the  neurogeometry is the problem of harmonizing contemporary mathematical instruments with neurophysiological findings and phenomenological experiments in an unitary science of vision.
The contributions to this book come from the very founders of the discipline.
