is no comparable text for a course in perception that emphasizes the neural
basis of perception rather than simply perceptual phenomena and
psychophysics…It is strong in the clarity with which some difficult concepts
are explained. The author does not restrict himself to a physics and
engineering approach, but rather gives the reader a mental image of what is
happening biologically. Inclusion of disorders is another big advantage…The
think the book’s primary strengths are its attention to detail and willingness
to tackle difficult topics and offer very good explanations and
very sympathetic to the goal of this book in taking an enhanced
multidisciplinary approach to the area of Sensation/Perception, with particular
emphasis on the neuroscience background. Also commendable is the detailed
treatment of sense modalities other than vision and audition."
"I like the general tone of the
book. The overall approach and the metaphors are quite nice."
The book was not the right fit for my course. I needed a book that was more neuroscience and cognitive psychology and more perception oriented. This would be better for a different type of course than the one I teach.
