About the Authors
  • The advent of sensors capable of localizing portions of the brain involved in specific computations has provided significant insights into normal visual information processing and specific neurological conditions. Aided by devices such as fMRI, researchers are now able to construct highly detailed models of how the brain processes specific patterns of visual information. This book brings together some of the strongest thinkers in this field, to explore cortical visual information processing and its underlying mechanisms. It is an excellent resource for vision researchers with both biological and computational backgrounds, and is an essential guide for graduate students just starting out in the field.

    • Colour illustrations, book text and talks from the 2007 York Vision Conference are included in the accompanying DVD
    • Contributors are world leaders in their field, who have detailed working knowledge of the topic
    • Replaces other aged classics, maintaining breadth to cover multiple aspects of the visual brain

  • Editors

    Michael Jenkin, York University, Toronto
    Michael Jenkin is Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at York University, Ontario, Canada. His research interests include perception and guidance for autonomous robotic systems, and the development and analysis of virtual reality systems. In 2005 he was the recipient of the CIPPRS/ACTIRF award for research excellence and service to the Canadian Computer and Robot Vision research community.

    Laurence Harris, York University, Toronto
    Laurence Harris is a chair of the Department of Psychology, and a member of the Centre for Vision Research at York University in Toronto. He received his PhD from Cambridge University and was a lecturer in Physiology at the University of Wales until coming to Canada in 1990. He is interested in how information coming through different senses is combined to determine orientation and self motion perception and to localize events in space and time and how these perceptions may be altered in unusual environments such as the microgravity of space or by clinical conditions such as Parkinson's syndrome.
