Brian A. Wandell (Author). This book is an excellent introduction to human vision. It is aimed at students, or engineers who need to deal with human vision, but it can also be interesting for a motivated audience desiring to learn precisely how human vision works. ISBN-13: 978-0878938537. The presentation is very educational, Wandell not only gives the current knowledge about vision, he also explains the method and evidences which lead to these conclusions. This book is a real pleasure to read, which is not always the case for textbooks.

Wandell is the Isaac and Madeline Stein Family Professor at Stanford University, where he is Director of the Stanford Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging, and Deputy Director of the Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute. His work in visual neuroscience uses both functional MRI and computational modeling to understand the action of the visual portions of the brain. His laboratory has worked to develop methods for identifying and measuring visual field maps in visual cortex

In Foundations of Vision (see record 1995-98050-000), Brian Wandell divides the study of vision into three parts: encoding, representation, and interpretation. Each part is designed to inform students on. Save to Library.

Focuses not on revelation but eyesight, and not much on the facts of the subject as the principles and practices used in obtaining and processing the facts. Explains how the visual pathway encodes the retinal image, how the neural response within the peripheral and early cortical pathways represents the encoded image, and how we assign to the image perceptual properties such as color, motion, and shape. For vision students. Avoids mathematical symbols and formal arguments except a few sections that assume a background in linear algebra and calculus. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
Reviews:
  • Shem
If you work in neuroscience you cannot avoid to have this book on your shelf.
It goes through the all basics of Vision in a very clear manner.

This book is an excellent introduction to human vision. It is aimed at students, or engineers who need to deal with human vision, but it can also be interesting for a motivated audience desiring to learn precisely how human vision works. The presentation is very educational, Wandell not only gives the current knowledge about vision, he also explains the method and evidences which lead to these conclusions. This book is a real pleasure to read, which is not always the case for textbooks.
It covers the early vision (optical properties, sampling, wavelength), the image representation (retina, cortex, pattern sensitivity, multiresolution) and interpretation (shape, motion, color, depth, illusions)
My only concern was that the book puts a lot of emphasis on the notion of linear system, and that this notion is unfortunately explained in a very fuzzy way for my mathematical mind. This comment should be ignored by non mathematician readers.
