Outstanding book: Clear and practical both as a textbook and as a reference manual 7 Oct 2012
By Arman - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At some point I needed to learn psychophysics for my research into visual perception and the only accessible way was through reading papers in the field or learning from supervisors, peers or mentors. That way, I managed to learn bits and pieces and use that knowledge to get results. However, one lucky day I stumbled across this book on Internet after finding authors' freely available Matlab toolbox, called Palamides, that accompanies this book. The book helped me understand thoroughly many concepts that I used to use blindly and put together bits and pieces of knowledge of psychophysics that I acquired previously. The Matlab toolbox made it simple for me to try out various methodologies and concepts while working through a chapter. This facilitated my understanding of a topic on the practical level. I find the authors have done an excellent job at synthesizing a vast field of psychophysics, that generated a huge amount of research for more than a century, into a clear, cohesive, accessible and practical book. I currently use it both as a textbook for myself (there is still plenty to learn about psychophysics) and as a reference manual for Palamedes toolbox.

As a side note, I also find the Palamides toolbox that accompanies the book to be a very nice piece of software that is carefully designed and well implemented (I say this is a former software engineer).

I have been recommending this book to many of my colleagues, some of whom are seasoned researchers and some are just venturing into the awesome discipline of psychophysics.
