Perceiving in Depth is a sequel to Binocular Vision and Stereopsis and to Seeing in Depth, both by Ian P. Howard and Brian J. Rogers. This three-volume work is much broader in scope than previous texts and includes mechanisms of depth perception by all senses, including aural, electrosensoryorgans, and the somatosensory system. The work contains three extensively illustrated and referenced volumes. Volume 1 reviews sensory coding, psychophysical and analytic procedures, and basic visual mechanisms. Volume 2 deals with stereoscopic vision. Volume 3 covers all mechanisms of depthperception other than stereoscopic vision. Together, these three volumes provide the most detailed review of all aspects of perceiving the three-dimensional world.
Ian P. Howard is Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus and Founder of the Centre for Vision Research at York University. Brian J. Rogers is Fellow and Professor of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford.
