`The key strengths of this book are the expertise of the contributors, the engaging format, and the interesting examples they us' - Greg Burton, Seaton Hall University This volume brings together a selection of the most influential current thinkers in the area of visual perception. We are often confused by our visual systems, for example size distortions, but there is an underlying `intelligence' to our visual system, even in the face of what would seem to be short-circuits within our sensory processing. This book explores varying views of this `intelligence`.

Author Biography - Theodore E. Parks

Dr. Parks is primarily interested in visual perception from a "militantly eclectic" point of view, but with a special interest in innate "intelligent" processes as they occur in various aspects of perception. His research for the past several years has primarily revolved around illusions including standard geometric examples, but most often illusory contours. He has secondary interests in iconic storage aperture viewing (the so called "Parks-Effect") and non-traditional instances of human memory phenomena (especially memory illusions).
