Part One of Foundations of Vision consists of three chapters that describe image encoding. These chapters review optical image formation by the cornea and lens, retinal sampling, and wavelength-encoding by the photoreceptors. In Part Two, on image representation, are four chapters covering the retina, visual cortex, pattern sensitivity, and multiresolution representations of images. Part Three reviews how images are interpreted. Two chapters cover computational and experimental studies of color appearance, and motion and depth, and a third chapter contains demonstrations and discussion of how we see objects. Topics such as color appearance, cortical color blindness, motion flow, motion appearance, motion physiology, and visual illusions are also included in this part of the book.
Foundations of Vision is suitable for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses on vision science in psychology, neuroscience, engineering, or computer science departments....Continua
