Livre : Essentials of Sensation and Perception

Livre : Essentials of Sensation and Perception. George Mather. May 2011. Publisher: Routledge, 194 pages, 13 livres

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.
