Book Description

7 Aug 2003 1841692387 978-1841692388 4
This comprehensively updated and expanded revision of the successful second edition continues to provide detailed coverage of the ever-growing range of research topics in vision. In Part I, the treatment of visual physiology has been extensively revised with an updated account of retinal processing, a new section explaining the principles of spatial and temporal filtering which underlie discussions in later chapters, and an up-to-date account of the primate visual pathway.
Part II contains four largely new chapters which cover recent psychophysical evidence and computational model of early vision: edge detection, perceptual grouping, depth perception, and motion perception. The models discussed are extensively integrated with physiological evidence. All other chapters in Parts II, III, and IV have also been thoroughly updated.

Product Description


'This book is beautifully written throughout. It is clear, concise and interesting, and never makes the mistake of glossing over or avoiding important issues. I know of no other book that, in each new edition, succeeds in maintaining its coherence and its identity, while keeping pace with the changing emphasis of contemporary approaches to vision.' - Mike Harris, University of Birmingham 'The extensive revisions to the text give the book a clear edge in offering an up-to-date view of developments in the field in a very digestible form. The new edition provides the most up-to-date text on vision in the market.' - George Mather, University of Sussex

4.0 out of 5 stars Bridges the undergrad-postgrad gap nicely 25 Jun 2004
By CraigAS
Books on vision science generally fall into two widely separated categories. There exists a mountain of near-plagiaristic basic undergraduate texts such as Sekuler and Blake, Goldstein, or Coren, Ward and Ennis that all contain pretty much the same basic stuff (Face-Vase illusions, Gibson vs Marr, etc) but aren't so hot when it comes to the practical aspects of conducting vision research. There are also high-level, jargon-filled techy tracts such as Wandell or Robson and Carpenter and other books that concentrate soley on classical psychophysical theory at the expense of practical laboratory methods such as Gescheider. In between, for a student who desires to go beyond the undergraduate level there is a sad absence of any decent books. This is primarily the fault of academic publishers who refuse to believe that there is a market for books at an intermediate level that bridge the gap between being an undergrad and being a postgrad. Bruce, Green and Georgeson fills this gap nicely. The previous two editions by just Bruce and Green concentrated more on visual cognition at the expense of psychophysics but the addition of Mark Georgeson as a third author has solved that problem. This really is an excellent textbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good update of an old classic 23 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
worth reading but not a complete treatment of the subject. The earlier chapters are the most interesting to those interested in "how we see". You have to remember that this is a text book not a popular read.
