Description - The Blackwell Handbook of Sensation and Perception by E. Bruce Goldstein
This volume provides an overview of the field of perception with special emphasis on contemporary developments and trends. It adopts a "tutorial" approach to describing psychophysical and physiological research, and is organized into seven distinct sections including: visual perception; development and plasticity; and the chemical senses. Each of the chapters includes a tabulation of "basic data" for each individual topic, for example the chapter on visual processes will include data such as receptor and neuron densities. At the end of each chapter there is also an "additional topics" section, which contains references to important topics that were not covered in the chapter, together with references to clinical and applied work. "The Blackwell Handbook of Perception" should therefore provide an valuable reference and tutorial source for researchers, practitioners and students alike.
