At last: a textbook on visual perception that is authoritative and cutting-edge - yet still fun to read. Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception demystifies the processes through which we see undergraduate teaching experience between them, it provides a refreshing new approach for those students who have been left bewildered and jaded by other texts. The book leads the reader step-by-step through the intricacies of visual processing, with full-colour illustrations on nearly every page. The writing style captures the excitement of recent research in neuroscience that has transformed our understanding of visual processing, but delivers it with a humour that keeps the reader enthused, rather than bemused. The first text to make this topic truly accessible to an undergraduate audience: the ideal teaching and learning resource for lecturers and students alike. Absorbing and engaging writing style helps to motivate the student by drawing them into the subject rather than intimidating them. Special emphasis on visual neuroscience takes the student right to the fore-front of current research. Boxes augment the text, expanding and simplifying key concepts. Full colour illustrations throughout enhance the educational value of the book. Book jacket.
