This volume combines the classical fields of perception research with the major theoretical attitudes of today's research, distinguishing between experience- versus performance-related approaches, transformational versus interactional approaches, and approaches that rely on the processing versus discovery of information. Perception is separated into two parts. The first part deals with basic processes and mechanisms, and discusses early vision and later, yet still basic, vision. The second covers complex achievements with accounts of perceptual constancies and the perception of patterns, objects, events, and actions.
* Gives an overview of the current status of research in classical areas and of current approaches to perception
* Covers research areas and theoretical approaches
* Combines American and European research
* Emphasizes complex achievements of perception: auditory patterns, object identification, event perception, and perception of action

Handbook of Perception and Action is a three-volume set that, in addition to giving overviews of the state-of-the-art in these two areas, also stresses the functional relationships between them.
This, the first volume, combines the coverage of classical fields of study in the area of perception with representation of major theoretical attitudes that are characteristic of today's research in perception.
This book consists of two parts: the first section covers basic processes and mechanisms; the second deals with more complex achievements (object, event, action perception). The first section moves from very early vision via early vision, to not-so-early, but still basic vision. The second section starts with an account of perceptual constancies, then proceeds to pattern and object perception, and finally concludes with the perception of events and actions.
This volume, together with the two accompanying volumes on action and attention, will be of great interest and use to researchers, technicians, graduate students and final-year undergraduates in psychology, developmental psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience.
