Overview

While primates vary greatly in morphology and behavioral adaptations, all primates share certain features of the visual system, one of the most traditional and largest areas in modern neuroscience. Although there are several books on vision in the market, until now no book has provided a comprehensive overview of the primate visual system. This book synthesizes the current knowledge on the anatomical and functional organization of the primate visual system and proposes new directions for research. Contributed by ...

Overview

While primates vary greatly in morphology and behavioral adaptations, all primates share certain features of the visual system, one of the most traditional and largest areas in modern neuroscience. Although there are several books on vision in the market, until now no book has provided a comprehensive overview of the primate visual system. This book synthesizes the current knowledge on the anatomical and functional organization of the primate visual system and proposes new directions for research. Contributed by a multidisciplinary group of leading researchers, chapters consider a range of topics concerning various primates, including humans, and cover processing from the eye to neural codes for action, and from basic perception to memory.
