Descrizione del libro

settembre 1990
Recent theoretical developments and research findings from three different approaches to visual perception are brought together in this book. The first approach is physiological; the evolution of different types of eye and the physiology of mammalian visual pathways are described. The second is the traditional psychological approach; perceptual organization, the perception of depth and motion, and pattern recogniton are discussed in terms of the processing of information contained in retinal images. Emphasis is placed on recent computational work on these processes, and particularly on algorithms for the detection of edges and motion, the computation of stereo disparity, and object recognition. Connectionist approaches to these problems are discussed and contrasted with those of theorists such as Marr. The third perspective considered is ecological; the work of Gibson and his followers is described and applied to problems of animal and human locomotion, even perception and perception of the social world, including the human face. The book stands out from other texts on visual perception in treating both the computational and ecological approaches in detail, and in seeking to clarify the points of contact and controversy between them. It is also distinctive in placing emphasis on animal vision as well as that of humans. Aimed at advanced undergraduate psychology and zoology students, this book will also prove of value to postgraduate students and research workers. The book has been updated and substantially enlarged in its second edition, in particular to include new material on connectionism, the computation of motion and the primal sketch.

4.0 su 5 stelle Not perfect, but the best out there 12 luglio 2002
Di Ken - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I have used this book for over ten years now as one of the texts in an intermediate level cognitive science course on perception and action. Each year I review the new offerings in the field, and each year I come back to this book as the best available. Its greatest strengths are (1) the thoroughness with which it covers both the theoretical disputes and the empirical literature on vision, (2) its broadly interdisciplinary nature, including work from the neurosciences, artificial intelligence, and human and animal behavior, and (3) its emphasis on the deep connections between how we see and how we move. This combination of approaches is simply not to be found in any other book on vision. Understanding the last of these -- that the way we see is thoroughly integrated with how we move about in the world -- will change your view of a great many things about human nature.
What keeps it from being perfect? The writing style of the book is clunky at times, and sometimes the exposition isn't as clear as it could be, so that readers who are new to the subject may have to work hard at some points to understand some of the more complex material. However, you'll be rewarded for your efforts if you make them. All in all, a great introduction to a fascinating set of issues.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent Book 28 settembre 2007

This is a great book for graduate studies of perception. It is very detailed in covering important topics and it is up to date with most recent research. The amount of detail sometimes can be overwhelming, so I wouldn't recommend it for undergraduates. The authors sometimes get side tracked into lengthy discussions of a particular subject, but overall it's a good book. I received it within days of my order and for a better price that I could get in the book store.

Whatever your interest area is, related to perception, of course, here you can find a very complete guide to visual perception; not very simple, neither too deep, just what you need for becoming almost an expert in a short time.
