Active vision : the psychology of looking and seeing
Oxford University Press 2003EISBN 0191545732
More than one third of the human brain is devoted to the processes of seeing - vision is after all the main way in which we gather information about the world. This book is unique in focusing on vision as an 'active' process. It goes beyond most accounts of vision where the focus is on seeing, to provide an integrated account of seeing AND looking. Written by two leading vision scientists, this book will be valuable for vision researchers and psychology students,from undergraduate level upwards.
