Eye and Brain: The Psychology of Seeing

Eye and Brain is a renowned work that is essentially an introduction to the basic concept of vision and perception. The author provides clearly presented analyses of how we see brightness, movement, color, and objects, while exploring the phenomena of optical illusions to establish principles about how perception normally works and why it sometimes fail.

Illusions constitute most of the central theme of the book, along with parts on what babies see and how they learn to see, on motion perception, the relationship between vision and consciousness, and on the impact of new brain imaging techniques.
