Summary
This book covers all aspects of the visual system from sensory aspects to eye movements, attention, and visual memory. Also covering the psychology, anatomy, and physiology of all aspects of the visual system. Each chapter addresses a separate aspect of vision, describing the basic phenomena, where in the brain this aspect of vision occurs, the properties of the cells in those areas, and the deficits that result from a lesion or stroke in those areas. In addition to extensive illustrations, the book contains the author's selection of the literature, from the classic 19th century papers to the present. This text is designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in psychology, optometry, physiology, anatomy, and medicine who want to get a broad view rather than one confined to their particular discipline
