This new benchmark publication comes from one of the world's foremost researchers on vision and the brain. The cerebal cortex is the most complicated piece of matter in the known universe, and is responsible for all the higher behavioural functions which help define us as human. A Vision of the Brain is the most sustained attempt made so far to explain how the cortex works both with specific reference to vision and generally. At a level accessible to those beginning studies within neuroscience, this exciting book explores the unfolding of our understanding, as a detective story, of how the visual cortex works, which in turn gives us a vision of how the brain works as a whole. Illustrated throughout in two colours, and examining both normal and abnormal functions, this book will be of major interest to neurologists, psychologists, ophthalmologists and neuroscientists.
