The eye, the retina, and the entire visual pathway are concerned with an organism's interaction with the world of light. This book focuses on the importance of image contrast to vision. The 17 contributions present current research in visual signal processing, in the retina and central pathways, and in the study of contrast sensivity in humans. The field is surveyed from fundamental processes in receptor outer segments, all the way to human perceptual processes that use information from visual contrast for reading and form discriminations. The book covers both theoretical implications throughout, and possible clinicl implications are taken up in the latter chapters of the book.
