This volume presents an integrated view of how we perceive the spatial relations in our visual world, covering anatomical, physiological, psychophysical, and perceptual aspects. The authors discuss the visual system primarily in terms of spatial frequency analysis using a linear systemsapproach. They review evidence supporting a local, patch-by-patch spatial frequency filtering of visual information rather than the global Fourier analysis other researchers have proposed. A separate chapter addresses the special issues surrounding color vision, and a brief, nonmathematicalintroduction to linear systems analysis is included for the uninitiated reader.
Karen K. DeValois is at University of California, Berkeley.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an outstanding monograph on early vision, highly recommended for everyone seriously interested in the study of visual sensation, perception, and cognition. The wealth of lucidly presented knowledge and the quantity of highly important and sometimes unexpected results reviewed in thefirst nine chapters are very impressive. As a guide to a complex field of inquiry for the advanced student or researcher specialized in other fields of cognition, the monograph by Russell and Karen De Valois is to my knowledge unsurpassed. This is an outstanding piece of work and a gift for anyoneinterested in close encounters with spatial vision." --European Journal of Cognitive Psychology
