Vision Science Books

CRAS
 
Psychophysics: The Fundamentals
Psychophysics: The Fundamentals
"A comprehensive and none-too-daunting introduction to a difficult area. A bit short on practical advice, though. Try Kingdom and Prins for that."
Sensation and Perception
Sensation and Perception
"Reference work for undergraduate psychology students. Contains chapters on the other senses and some interesting asides about animal senses."
Perception
Perception
"Covers much the same ground as Goldstein; Coren, Ward & Enns; Wolfe et al, and many other similar textbooks, but everybody seems to use it anyway! Contains chapters on the other senses."
Visual Perception: Physiology, Psychology and Ecology
Visual Perception: Physiology, Psychology and Ecology
"By far the best postgrad-level introduction to visual perception from cognitive, psychophysical and physiological perspectives. Vastly improved by the addition of Mark Georgeson as third author."
Physiology of Behavior
Physiology of Behavior
"The most user-friendly intro to physiological psychology one could hope for."
The Motion Aftereffect: A Modern Perspective (Bradford Book) (Bradford Books)
The Motion Aftereffect: A Modern Perspective (Bradford Book) (Bradford Books)
"Fascinating and thorough history and review of current research into this most compelling of visual illusions."
Spatial Vision (Oxford Psychology Series)
Spatial Vision (Oxford Psychology Series)
"Postgrad-level introduction to the Fourier approach to vision."
Visual Detection of Motion
Visual Detection of Motion
"Great introduction to the science and theory of motion perception. Out of print."
Visual Pattern Analyzers (Oxford Psychology Series)
Visual Pattern Analyzers (Oxford Psychology Series)
"Meaty. Weighty. Worth looking at simply for the chapter on mathematics of visual stimulus presentation. Gets complicated around chapter 3 and stays that way."
The Island of the Colour-blind and Cycad Island
The Island of the Colour-blind and Cycad Island
"Too much about islands and not enough about colour-blindness, but a good read. Although i wish Sacks would cut out his annoying use of endnotes. Git."
Who Is Fourier? a Mathematical Adventure
Who Is Fourier? a Mathematical Adventure
"A knowledge of Fourier analysis is crucial in modern vision research. If, like me, you're crap at maths, this is the book for you! I've never enjoyed maths so much."
Psychophysics
Psychophysics
"Haven't read this yet, but the authors know what they're talking about, so I trust it will be a good buy!"
Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception
Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception
"Hugely entertaining (if a bit trite) undergraduate-level introduction to vision by the British vision Mafia."
Detection Theory: A User's Guide
Detection Theory: A User's Guide
"Don't know your Wiebull from your Logistic? Wondering what's so great about the 2AFC paradigm? Then this book is for you."
Discovering Statistics Using SPSS (Introducing Statistical Methods series)
Discovering Statistics Using SPSS (Introducing Statistical Methods series)
"I never thought that I would piss myself laughing at a statistic textbook, but this one made me wet my pants (and I think I may have learned something about statistics too)."
