Eye and brain; the psychology of seeing by R. L Gregory( Book )

175 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 3,688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the publication of the first edition in 1966, Eye and Brain has established itself worldwide as an essential introduction to the basic phenomena of visual perception. In this book, Gregory offers clear explanations of how we see brightness, movement, color, and objects, and he explores the phenomena of visual illusions to establish principles about how perception normally works and why it sometimes fails. Although successive editions have incorporated new discoveries and ideas, this is the first time that Richard Gregory has completely revised and updated the text, adding more than thirty new illustrations. The phenomena of illusion continue to be a major theme in the book, in which the author makes a new attempt to provide a comprehensive classification system. There are also new sections on what babies see and how they learn to see, on motion perception, and tantalizing glimpses of the relationship between vision and consciousness and of the impact of new brain imaging techniques. In addition, the presentation of the text and illustrations has been improved by the larger format and new page design. The thousands of readers of the previous editions of Eye and Brain will find this new revised edition even more attractive and enthralling. -- Back cover
The intelligent eye by R. L Gregory( Book )

60 editions published between 1970 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 1,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the premise that perception is a continual series of simple hypotheses about the external world which are built up and selected by sensory experiences, this book explores in detail some of the major findings in perception and speculates about interconnections between sensory experiences, brain function, perception, and language and thought. Topics covered include objects and pictures; reversals and distorting figures; scaling the universe; drawing in two and three dimensional space; pictures, symbols, thought and language; and seeing how things work. Some evidence is offered for the author's suggestion that the brain function man has inherited from his biological past has been fundamentally modified by the uniquely human invention of symbols and that logical problem solving is gradually divorcing man from the way brains work. It is suggested that with technological development, man must adapt to what he is creating or run the risk of creating a world beyond the restraints of his own intelligence. (Rh)

Mirrors in mind by R. L Gregory( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mirrors fascinate us - they can reveal and they can delude; and they reflect nature for both science and art. The precious and magic objects of history still set us curious puzzles, such as the left-right reversed mirror writing, which has confused philosophers and scientists - and most people - through the ages. In this highly unusual and deeply fascinating book, Richard Gregory provides us with a rich and a varied feast from the world of mirrors: mirrors in science, in
