Overview

This book sets the standard in bringing technical scientific information on the subject of sensation and perception to a wide audience with outstanding readability and thorough coverage.

Retaining its traditionally clear and accessible writing style, this new edition boasts a thoroughly revised art program and over 1,300 new references. The motion chapter now focuses solely on visual motion perception, so it appears earlier in the book. In addition, the book includes thirteen In-Depth sections, each of which explore a current “hot” research topic to provide a sense of how researchers ask questions with subjects varying from the role of face recognition in eyewitness testimony to phantom limb perception.
