Overview

This work examines a broad spectrum of the latest topics in visual science, relating basic studies to applications and delineating points of intersection among the various disciplines that study the mechanisms of vision. It discusses, among other topics: the Purkinje-image eyetracker; the principles of high-definition television; and the role of stabilized-image technology in revealing how eye movements control both luminous and chromatic perceptions.

Examines in detail the mechanisms and interactions of vision, emphasizing those aspects that affect how optical devices could or should be designed. Among the topics are the basic optics, eye movement and contrast sensitivity, the molecular genetics of human color vision, topographical mapping, graphic arts, and real-time display systems. Illustrated in black and white. Addressed to graduate students and professionals in optical engineering and related fields, but also of possible interest to psychologists and physiologists.
