From Bradford Books:
The Visual Neurosciences Volumes 1 and 2
Edited by Leo M. Chalupa and John S. Werner

The Visual Neurosciences contains over 100 chapters covering 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.

Leo M. Chalupa is Professor in the Department of Ophthalmalogy and the Section of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior at the University of California, Davis.

John S. Werner is Professor in the Department of Ophthalmalogy and the Section of Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior at the University of California, Davis.
