The book is primarily suited as a textbook to help understand the computational aspects of the biological mechanisms of seeing as the reader goes through its numerous examples on neural computing schemes step by step. It addresses all relevant attributes of the Human Visual System (HVS) in a systematic fashion. Therefore, it is an appropriate material to learn from if the reader is willing to follow its complex but very imaginative explanations. In conclusion, this book can be considered as one of the essential pieces in the student’s or the scientist’s library.
This is a good book. But i got this for computer vision after being told by my lecturer it was essential reading.It was completely useless i had to sell it in the end. The tutor was also completely useless he referred a book i did not need, complete waste of time and money.Uni lecturers can be absolute !"*$heads. Anyway the book is well written but for computer vision get Digital Image Processing instead.
