Visual science is the model system for neuroscience, its findings relevant to all other areas. This massive collection of papers by leading researchers in the field will become an essential reference for researchers and students in visual neuroscience, and will be of importance to researchers and professionals in other disciplines, including molecular and cellular biology, cognitive science, ophthalmology, psychology, computer science, optometry, and education.Over 100 chapters cover the entire field of visual neuroscience, from its historical foundations to the latest research and findings in molecular mechanisms and network modeling. The book is organized by topic--different sections cover such subjects as the history of vision science; developmental processes; retinal mechanisms and processes; organization of visual pathways; subcortical processing; processing in the primary visual cortex; detection and sampling; brightness and color; form, shape,and object recognition; motion, depth, and spatial relationships; eye movements; attention and cognition; and theoretical and computational perspectives. The list of contributors includes leading international researchers in visual science.

"The DNA microarrays are generally accepted as great new tools in biology and medicine, but they are still not sufficiently utilized in studying gene expression in complex tissues such as the mammalian central nervous system. This book is a long-awaited and much-anticipated source of basic information for neuroscientists who plan to use or already have begun to use the microarray technology. The value of this book is that it contains chapters prepared by experts that cover different aspects of this technology from a very basic introduction to microarray technology to the examples of its successful application in the developmental, integrative and clinical neurosciences. However, even to those who do not plan to use this approach, it could be of great help to understanding the language and appreciating the advances that will undoubtedly arrive."--Pasko Rakic, M.D., Ph.D., Dorys McConnell Duberg Professor of Neuroscience and Chairman of Neurobiology, Yale University School of MedicinePlease note: Endorser gives permission to excerpt from quote. "Stop looking for THE book in visual neuroscience. This is it. Chalupa and Werner have organized the single greatest intellectual event in the visual sciences, and this book will be the reference source for the next decade. One can journey with breathtaking swiftness and depth through every nook and cranny of the visual system. Chalupa, Werner, and the authors are to be congratulated for providing us with this monumental work." Michael S. Gazzaniga, Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, Dartmouth College "*The Visual Neurosciences* is a veritable who's who of contemporary visual neuroscience. The contributions of over 100 leading researchers cover the field from retina to cortex and beyond, and provide an authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the field."--Dennis Levi, Dean, School of Optometry and Professor of Optometry and Neuroscience, University of California, BerkeleyPlease note: Affiliation changed slightly. "This book is a remarkable achievement - a milestone in vision research. The editors have assembled an outstanding collection of contributors to explore the many facets of visual neuroscience."--Colin Blakemore, Waynflete Professor of Physiology, University of Oxford "*The Visual Neurosciences* is a magnificent achievement and should be in the library of every vision scientist and brain researcher with an interest in this important field."--Pasko Rakic, M.D., Ph.D., Dorys McConnell Duberg Professor of Neuroscience and Chairman of Neurobiology, Yale University School of Medicine " The Visual Neurosciences is a magnificent achievement and should be in the library of every vision scientist and brain researcher with an interest in this important field."
