Light Vision Color
1. Edition March 2005
474 Pages, Softcover
Practical Approach Book
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.
Light Vision Color takes a well-balanced, interdisciplinary approach to our most important sensory system. The book successfully combines basics in vision sciences with recent developments from different areas such as neuroscience, biophysics, sensory psychology and philosophy. Originally published in 1998 this edition has been 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 colour vision.
* Takes a broad interdisciplinary approach combining basics in vision sciences with the most recent developments in the area
