Summary
"Written for a broad undergraduate audience, Martin Tovee offers students a concise, yet detailed, overview of how the visual system is organised and functions to produce visual perception. Building on the popularity of the first edition of this wide-ranging introductory text, he takes his readers from first principles on a journey from focusing the image in the eye to the final 3D representation in the brain. He shows how recent discoveries in molecular genetics and brain imaging have illuminated our understanding of how we perceive our surroundings and the short cuts our brain takes to produce a coherent picture of the world. This book will be an invaluable course text for students within the fields of psychology, neuroscience, biology and physiology; indeed for anyone studying visual perception."--BOOK JACKET
