About this book

It has become apparent that vision is not a passive process working on the retinal image like a film to record a perfect copy as the perception. Instead, higher-level cognitive processes such as expectancies, memories and experience play a critical, almost overriding role. This book is a review and summary of the tremendous advances that have been made in recent years on the effect of attention on visual perception. The book will appeal to vision scientists as well as to people involved in using visual processes in computer animations, display design or the sensory systems of machines. Physiologists and neuroscientists interested in any aspect of sensory or motor processes will also find this a very useful and broad-ranging volume.
