Short Description

The first introductory book on the market to take an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, Light Vision Color , integrates perspectives from philosophy, biophysics, neurophysiology, genetics, medicine, and psychology. Color science and engineering is a fast developing field and one that currently does not have a textbook that integrates physics, perception, and visual biology into one volume. Originally published in Norwegian by Tapir (1998), this English edition is extensively revised and updated to include new chapters on clinical problems and eye diseases, low vision rehabilitation, and the basic molecular biology and genetics of color vision.
