Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although still bearing its 2007 copyright, this landmark concept lexicon by Bachmann (Psychophysiology of Visual Masking) and Bruno Breitmeyer, and Halek Ögmen (coauthors, Visual Masking) incorporates advances in consciousness research and its evaluative measures. Multiparagraph entries are alphabetized by recognized visual, auditory, or perceptual phenomenon name. Included are descriptions of experiences and experimental models, often with in-text citations. Extensive bibliographic references follow each entry. Illustrative images are presented when relevant. Scholarly in nature, this remains the principal, one-stop guide to consciousness-related concepts and experimental standards relevant to the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and even philosophy.
