This book presents an interdisciplinary overview of the main facts and theories that guide contemporary research on visual perception. While the chapters cover virtually all areas of visual science, from philosophical foundations to computational algorithms, and from photoreceptor processes to neuronal networks, no attempt has been made to provide an exhaustive treatment of these topics. Rather, researchers from such diverse disciplines as psychology, neurophysiology, anatomy, and clinical vision sciences have worked together to review some of the most important correlations between perceptual phenomena and the underlying neurophysiological processes and mechanisms. The book is thus intended to serve as an advanced text for graduate students and as a guide for all vision researchers to understanding current progress outside their specialized fields of interest.

"This book vigorously communicates the intellectual breadth and turmoil in the field of vision science. I am delighted to have this volume on my shelf. It has already served me well as a reference in several branches of the vision science literature...The book offers a far more coherent description of visual science than is available from a conference proceedings or a collection of short papers. This varied and active field needs this book and more like it."
