The Primate Visual System
A Comparative Approach
by Jan Kremers
Edition: 1st., 2005
Many recent developments in the field in recording, staining, genetic and stimulation techniques, in vivo, and in vitro have significantly increased the amount of available data on the primate visual system.Written with contributions from key neurobiologists in the field, The Primate Visual System will provide the reader with the latest developments, examining the structure, function and evolution of the primate visual system. The book takes a comparative approach as a basis for studying the physiological properties of primate vision and examines the phylogenetic relationship between the visual systems of different primate species. Taken from a neurobiologistís perspective this book provides a unique approach to the study of primate vision as a basis for further study into the human visual system.
Altogether an important overview of the structure, function and evolution of the primate visual system from a neurobiologistís perspective, written specifically for higher level undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in neuroscience, physiology, optics/ visual science, as well as a valuable read to researchers new to the field.
