Livre : Essentials of Sensation and Perception

Mather, George. Essentials of Sensation and Perception, Routledge,  202 p. Series: Foundations of Psychology.

The study of sensation and perception looks at how we acquire, process, and interpret information about the outside world. By describing key ideas from first principles, this straightforward introduction provides easy access to the basic concepts in the subject, and incorporates the most recent advances with useful historical background. The text takes a uniquely integrative approach, highlighting fundamental findings that apply across all the senses – including vision, hearing, touch, pain, balance, smell and taste – rather than considering each sense in isolation.
