Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception by Robert SnowdenHow do we spot a familiar face from across a crowded room, and know that were not waving to a complete stranger? How can we judge that an oncoming car is approaching too fast for us to cross the road safely, and immediately determine that were better off waiting at the curb?
Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception demystifies the processes through which the brain sees. It leads us through the various elements that come together in our perception of the world around us: size, color, motion, and three-dimensional space. The book illustrates the intricacy of the visual system, discussing its development during infancy, and reveals how the brain can get it wrong. It also demonstrates the importance of contemporary techniques and methodology--neuroscience-based techniques in particular--in advancing our understanding of the visual system.
With a sense of enthusiasm for the subject that pervades the book, Basic Vision is ideal for undergraduate courses in visual perception.

Basic Vision: An Introduction to Visual Perception
This course is not available as an outside option nor to General Course students. This course will offer an intermediate-level account of core theories, debates and phenomena in Cognitive Psychology. It will also relate these areas to core aspects of behavioural science, such as levels of processing, the influence of context, and the roles of heuristics and biases in information processing. The course will also seek to assess the application of these theories and concepts to relevant real world examples and policy issues via the class discussions. Eysenck, M.

The aim of this page is to give a brief introduction to the human visual system, and to briefly explain how light is transformed into a visual percept. Visual perception starts with the light emitted from or reflected from an object or a scene entering our eyes through the cornea, pupil and lens. The cornea and the lens help to concentrate and project the light onto a photosensitive layer of cells located at the back of the eyeball —the retina.
