Summary "With chapters contributed by a multidisciplinary group of leading researchers, The Primate Visual System provides a much-needed, comprehensive overview of the visual system in primates. It covers a range of topics concerning various primates, including humans, and examines processing from the eye to neural codes for action, and from basic perception to memory."--Jacket
