Early vision and beyond

(from the jacket) Using as its springboard Bela Julesz's many seminal contributions in vision, "Early Vision" presents in one convenient volume strategic problems in binocular vision, visual texture, motion perception, and visual attention. Each is examined from the point of view of at least 3 major disciplines--psychophysics, computational vision, and neurophysiology. /// As we gain deeper insights into the workings of the mind, and as technological advances allow bolder experiments, a multidisciplinary approach to the problem of vision is essential. These contributions present progress across disciplines in research on vision processes at the sensory level that are devoid of higher-order cognitive processes and semantics. Although divided into the 4 major sections mentioned above, chapters and sections are bound by common threads: several chapters report on psychoanatomical techniques, other chapters examine the role of color in diverse areas of early visual processing, while still others share the theme of perceptual learning, a relatively new area of research in early vision.
