In recent years, there have been many advances in the understanding of how we see. This text provides a current, well-balanced account of the workings of the visual system by integrating new scientific developments within a framework of established theories and concepts. The book addresses topics such as image formation, visual development, and object recognition within a context both traditional and cutting-edge. The author, accounting for the challenge of digesting such a wealth of information, reinforces the reader's understanding by including a "key points" section at the end of every chapter. This comprehensive text is an ideal source of information on the visual system for undergraduates as well as graduate students.
