Description - The Visual Neurosciences by Leo M. Chalupa
Visual science is the model system for neuroscience, its findings relevant to all other areas. This collection of papers by researchers in the field should be a useful reference for researchers and students in visual neuroscience and for researchers and professionals in other disciplines, including molecular and cellular biology, cognitive science, ophthalmology, psychology, computer science and education. Over 100 chapters cover the entire field, from its historical foundations to contemporary research and findings in molecular mechanisms and network modelling. The book is organized by topic - different sections cover such topics as the history of visual science; developmental processes; retinal mechanisms and processes; organization of visual pathways; subcortical processing; processing in the primary visual cortex; detection and sampling; brightness and colour; form, shape and object recognition; motion, depth and spatial relationships; eye movements; attention and cognition; and theoretical and computational perspectives.
