Editorial Reviews

Review

Of all our senses, vision is the most human. For those interested in how vision has evolved, how it develops, and how it works under normal and pathological conditions, this comprehensive volume is a must.

Pasko Rakic, Duberg Professor of Neurobiology and Neurology, Yale University School of Medicine

This cornucopia of visual delights contains an extraordinarily rich and authoritative review of the current state of knowledge of the most remarkable and most thoroughly researched of our senses. Werner and Chalupa have gathered together contributions from leading experts in every field, from the molecular biology of phototransduction to the neural computations that underpin our perception of the visual world. This huge book should and will grace the shelves of every serious student of vision.

Colin Blakemore, Professor of Neuroscience and Philosophy and Director of the Centre for the Study of the Senses, School of Advanced Study, University of London, and Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience, University of Oxford

Werner and Chalupa have done it again. This work will stand as a monumental and fundamental reference source for the visual sciences. Look no further for a book on the neuroscience of vision and place this volume in the middle of your desk. If it is not in here, don't worry about it.

Michael S. Gazzaniga
