Praise for the previous edition (2e): 'The interrelated phenomena of sensation and perception are fascinating subjects for students of the mind and brain. Sensation and Perception will draw students into the topic easily, luring them with engaging stories, colorful images, and fun demonstrations that will make them want to explore the brain's complex mechanisms for making sense of the world. ! this is a welcome addition to the textbooks of similar vein, because it is fresh and friendly, and is stamped with the mark of its high-quality scientist authors.' --Leslie P. Tolbert, The Quarterly Review of Biology
