Visual neuroscience is the study of the way in which the -brain accomplishes sight, and this book presents overviews of a range of topics in this area. The chapters are grouped into six sections - retina, retino-geniculate connections, visual development, comparative visual physiology, visual cortex and integrative aspects - and the authors describe both their own contributions to the field, and the influence of their teacher, P.O. Bishop, on their scientific development.
