Editorial Reviews

A volume honoring visual scientist Ikeda, whose work relates to many of the significant advances in the field over the past 40 years. The 16 contributions are arranged within three sections: ocular structure, function, and disease; retinal structure, function, and disease; and higher visual centers--structure, function, and disease. Among the topics are a study of pupil response components in human vision; the architecture of functional neural circuits in the cat retina; and the role of the pretectum in the pupillary light reflex.
