This comprehensively updated and expanded revision of the successful second edition continues to provide detailed coverage of the ever-growing range of research topics in vision. In Part I, the treatment of visual physiology has been extensively revised with an updated account of retinal processing, a new section explaining the principles of spatial and temporal filtering which underlie discussions in later chapters, and an up-to-date account of the primate visual pathway.
Part II contains four largely new chapters which cover recent psychophysical evidence and computational model of early vision: edge detection, perceptual grouping, depth perception, and motion perception. The models discussed are extensively integrated with physiological evidence. All other chapters in Parts II, III, and IV have also been thoroughly updated.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'An excellent, thorough revision which turns a useful book into an indispensible one. I would strongly recommend it as a main text for undergraduate vision courses in psychology and biology and for postgraduates starting research in vision science.' - Mike Harris, University of Birmingham, UK

'The new text significantly strengthens the unique position that the book occupies in the market.' - George Mather, University of Sussex, UK

'This book presents a richly detailed account of current thinking on visual perception... New sections have been added to represent important, and sometimes fascinating, new developments.' - Gillian Rhodes, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

'Teachers of final-year psychology courses on vision have long had a problem with textbooks. This book goes a long way towards correcting this situation. Arguably it goes further than any competitor, and it does so with a clear and informed style, scoring close to full marks for both conceptual and literary clarity.' - Andrew T. Smith, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
