One of the most remarkable things about seeing is how effortless this complex task appears to be. This book provides a comprehensive overview of research on the myriad complexities of this task. Coverage includes such classic topics as color, spatial, and binocular vision, areas that have seen a recent explosion of new information such as motion vision, image formation and sampling, and areas where new tools have allowed a better investigation into processes (e.g. neural representation of shape, visual attention). Seeing is a needed reference for researchers specializing in visual perception and is suitable for advance courses on vision.

"This book is a collection of chapters written by a number of well-respected experts in their chosen fields... Each chapter serves as an introduction to its chosen topic, allowing one to gain a good overview of an area of research... In general, I found this book to be well structured and infomative... I have no doubt that photocopies of individual chapters will find their way into many private reference collections." --PERCEPTION
