Vision Research by Roger Carpenter
Book DescriptionVision research is one of the largest and most active areas within brain research. Psychologists, neuroscientists, opthamologists and optometrists, computer scientists, and engineers all have an interest in the practical side of the subject. Vision Research is a clear and comprehensive laboratory manual providing all the detailed practical information needed to undertake vision research. Spanning methods used across the breadth of vision research, this book provides detailed protocols and advice on experimental techniques and procedures, as well as useful background information. It covers the choice and use of modern light sources and optical components, with particular consideration of how to generate specified colours, and the creation and presentation of images, with special emphasis on up-to-date computer techniques. It also deals with the design of psychophysical experiments, and the particular problems posed by working with children and with animals. Finally, it provides a thorough coverage of all types of physiological measurement: of ERG and evoked potentials, and the measurement of accommodation, eye movements, and pupil diameter. Here are the "tricks of the trade" of vision research, from some if its leading practitioners, of a kind that cannot be found in published papers and are often only acquired through apprenticeship and a life-time of personal experience. Accessibly written for those with little background in optics and electronics, this book will be essential for students undertaking practical vision research for the first time. Clinical researchers and experienced researchers in other fields wishing to learn about and use vision research techniques will also find it extremely useful. An essential resource in every vision research laboratory.
