Eye and Brain by R.L. Gregory

Book Description

Since the publication of the first edition in 1966, Eye and Brain has established itself worldwide as an essential introduction to the basic phenomena of visual perception. Richard Gregory offers clear explanations of how we see brightness, movement, color, and objects, and he explores the phenomena of visual illusions to establish principles about how perception normally works and why it sometimes fails. Illusion continues to be a major theme in the book, which provides a comprehensive classification system. There are also sections on what babies see and how they learn to see, on motion perception, the relationship between vision and consciousness, and on the impact of new brain imaging techniques.

Books By Author R.L. Gregory

Oxford Companion to the Mind by R.L. Gregory Oxford Companion to the Mind, Hardback (October 2004)

We all have a mind, but how much do we know about what it is, and how it works? How do philosophers, physiologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists differ in their understanding of its processes? The 2nd edition of the Oxford Companion to the Mind attempts to answer these questions, and raises more, as it explores this subject.

Artful Eye by R.L. Gregory Artful Eye, Hardback (November 1995)

This text presents the thoughts of scientists and artists working on many aspects of visual perception. It includes essays on perspective, especially of Vermeer's use of the Camera Obscura, the art of the forger and portraits of artists and scientists.
