This book revolutionizes how vision can be taught to undergraduate and graduate students in cognitive science, psychology, and optometry. It is the first comprehensive textbook on vision to reflect the integrated computational approach of modern research scientists. This new interdisciplinary approach, called "vision science," integrates psychological, computational, and neuroscientific perspectives.

The book covers all major topics related to vision, from early neural processing of image structure in the retina to high-level visual attention, memory, imagery, and awareness. The presentation throughout is theoretically sophisticated yet requires minimal knowledge of mathematics. There is also an extensive glossary, as well as appendices on psychophysical methods, connectionist modeling, and color technology. The book will serve not only as a comprehensive textbook on vision, but also as a valuable reference for researchers in cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, optometry, and philosophy.

About the Author:

Stephen E. Palmer is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Institute of Cognitive Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Review:

Palmer has written a superb book -- encyclopedic in scope, yet eminently readable. Every chapter is liberally sprinkled with novel insights into human vision.

(V.S. Ramachandran, Director, Center for Brain and Cognition, University of California, San Diego)

This is an excellent exposition of visual perception that lives up to the promise in its title: it covers the full range of visual perception, from image capture to visual cognition, in a comprehensive and lucid manner, providing insightful comments and criticism. It will be an invaluable source of information and insight to newcomers to the field, as well as to experts who wish to broaden their knowledge and understanding of visual perception.

(Shimon Ullman, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel)

This is a scholarly work, integrating evidence from numerous levels of analysis in the study of vision, including (but not restricted to) the very best from the 'cognitive' approach. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in perception.

(Jon Driver, Professor of Psychology, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London)

This is a monumental work, covering a wide range of topics, both classical findings and recent approaches on the frontiers of research.

(Anne Treisman, Princeton University)
