This exciting new book presents a highly complex subject of vision, focussing on the visual information processing and computational operations in the visual system that lead to representations of objects in the brain. In addition to visual processing, it also considers how visual imputs reachand are involved in the computations underlying a wide range of behaviour, thus providing a foundation for understanding the operation of a number of different brain systems. This fascinating book will be of value to all those interested in understanding how the brain works, and in understandingvision, attention, memory, emotion, motivation and action.

Editorial Reviews

"To help understand how the brain functions, especially regarding vision, Rolls (experimental psychology, U. of Oxford) and Deco (U. of Munich) link the neural computation approach to neuronal neurophysiology to provide primary data about how the brain operates; to psychophysical studies, for example of attention; to neuropsychological studies of patients with brain damage; and to functional magnetic resonance imaging and other neuroimaging techniques."--SciTech Book News
