Description - Visual Perception by Steven Yantis
This work collects together 25 articles in visual perception. It provides the reader with an overview of key research ideas as they first appeared. The articles span a century of research: the earliest was published in 1894, the most recent in 1997. There are examples from each of the many disciplines that have contributed to our current understanding of vision, including experimental psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, neurophysiology, and functional neuroimaging. The topics include theoretical perspectives (e.g. Helmholtz, Marr, Gibson), early vision (e.g. Hubel and Weisel, Newsome), perceptual organization and constancy (e.g. Wertheimer, Wallach, Rock), object and spatial vision (e.g. Biederman, Ungerleider & Mishkin), and visual attention and awareness (e.g. Treisman, Desimone, Weizkrantz). A brief introduction to each article by the editor provides an intellectual context and pointers to subsequent developments. Suggestions for further reading and discussion questions provide a framework for students to strengthen their understanding of different topics.
