Description - Color Vision by Karl R. Gegenfurtner

Color Vision: From Genes to Perception documents the present state of understanding regarding primate color vision in 20 review articles written by 35 leading international experts. The articles range from genes, the molecular genetics of the human cone photopigment genes, to perception, the color processing of complex scenes. Detailed overviews of such basic topics as cone spectral sensitivity and color processing in the retina and cortex are included. Introductions are given to important and innovative technologies such as molecular genetics, anatomical staining, visual psychophysics, intracellular and extracellular physiological recordings, and functional magnetic resonance imaging. Color Vision is intended for graduate students and research specialists. By bringing together scientists from different disciplines, the book will clarify issues of general interest for the expert and non-expert alike.
