The Oxford companion to The body by Colin Blakemore( Book )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides information on how the human body works, grows, develops, and ages from various perspectives; and explains the structure, processes, and diseases of the major parts of the body
Mechanics of the mind by Colin Blakemore( Book )

30 editions published between 1976 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of the brain is one of the last frontiers of science. In this personal review of the current state of knowledge, the author describes the mechanics of sensation, sleep, memory and thought

Tim's Vermeer by Teller( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did seventeenth century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer manage to paint so photo-realistically; 150 years before the invention of photography? Spanning eight years, his adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney, and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the collection of the Queen
Vision : coding and efficiency( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an extensive collection of essays on all aspects of vision, approached from the perspective of coding and efficiency. It examines the broad spectrum of vision research from one particular, unifying viewpoint, namely the way that visual systems efficiently encode and represent the outside world. This approach, both rigorous and general, was championed by H.B. Barlow in the fifties and has been followed in many areas of vision research. The approach has recently acquired new significance due to the growing interest of computer science and artificial intelligence in the processes of vision, which attempts to describe visual processes in algorithmic terms, equally relevant to a robotic visual system, the eye of a fly or the complex visual pathways in the human brain
Gender and society : essays based on Herbert Spencer lectures given in the University of Oxford( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physiology of cognitive processes by Royal Society (Great Britain)( Book )

The roots of visual awareness : a festschrift in honour of Alan Cowey by C. A Heywood( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume was assembled in honor of Professor Alan Cowey FRS, and attempts to embrace his wide range of research interests in visual neuroscience. It is divided into four sections. The first contains a group of papers dealing with different fundamental aspects of the visual system, including the control and monitoring of eye movements. The second is concerned with the functional organization of cortical visual areas and their role in visual perception and visually guided action. The third addresses issues concerning color and motion perception, along with broader questions of visual attention; and the effects of selective brain damage on these different aspects of visual experience. The fourth and final section of the volume deals explicitly with questions relating to visual awareness, with particular emphasis on 'blindsight', a topic on which Alan Cowey has worked extensively in recent years, both in humans and in monkeys

Common sense the enchanted loom( Visual )

3 editions published between 1983 and 1991 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the range of sensory information that is transmitted to the human cerebral cortex, and examines how the brain sorts and classifies sensory information--searching for clues and interpreting them on the basis of expectation, past experience and information from other sources. The senses provide the information, and the brain provides the meaning
I meccanismi della mente by Colin Blakemore( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lateral inhibition in the retina( Visual )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program illustrates the neural process of the retina. Animated diagrams of eye cells, light receptors, and the receptive field of a ganglion cell are discussed. Fields concepts are clearly presented, but recent concepts of retinal organization are omitted. This simplistic explanation of retinal function is recommended with reservations as a basic, but superficial, overview of the topic
Development in the visual cortex( Visual )

5 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program depicts the development of the visual cortex in the newborn kitten. An experiment is presented in which the influence of early visual experiences on later visual memory is portrayed; consistent emphasis is placed on early visual images as the template for later visual responses. Application of the general concepts of psychophysics to visual system development is considered. Deprivation of visual experience, the neuron's role in the visual cortex, andenvironmental modification of the cortex are discussed. The manner in which visual orientation effects visual experiences and, ultimately, visual memory, is well demonstrated, but more detail is needed in the discussion of detecting neurons. These concepts, which are the logically organized results of a few experiments and generalizations from literature, are important to the understanding the physiology of the visual cortex; however, this presentation is simplistic and superficial. It is recommended with reservations for use
Binocular interaction in animals and man by Colin Blakemore( Book )
