In Eye, Brain, and Vision, he brings you to the edge of current knowledge about vision, and explores the tasks scientists face in deciphering the many remaining mysteries of vision and the workings of the human brain.

Understanding vision, Stone argues, is not simply a question of knowing which neurons. This book encompasses so much experience and research about the autistic brain that I can't hold on to much of it.

Hubel. Publisher: W. Freeman ISBN/ASIN: ISBN Number of pages: Description: Hubel begins by explaining the structure and function of the retina and visual areas of the brain, then proceeds to more complex phenomena, such as how the brain and eyes together produce stereoscopic.

The eye is a seat of a steady electric potential field that is quite unrelated to light stimulation. In fact, this field may be detected with the eye in total darkness and/or with the eyes closed. It can be described as a fixed dipole with positive pole at the cornea and negative pole at the retina.

Like the ear, which also provides us with our sense of balance, we now know that the eye performs two functions. Light sensitive cells known as cones in the retina at the back of the eye send electrochemical signals primarily to an area of the brain known as the visual cortex, where the visual images we see are formed.

Most people have a dominant eye. It is the one that the brain takes most notice of when both eyes are open. Not everyone has a dominant eye. 80% are right eye dominant, 10% are left eye. First, some specifics about the eye: the human eye is about cm in length and weighs about 7 grams. Light passes through the cornea, pupil and lens before hitting the retina.

The iris is a muscle that controls the size of the pupil and therefore, the amount of light that enters the eye. Also, the color of your eyes is determined by the iris. Making Eye Contact Is Akin to Keeping Your Eye On the Ball I first became aware of the vestibulo-ocular reflex when I was learning to play tennis.

Drawing on his earlier book Cognition and the Visual Arts and ten years of new findings in cognitive research (as well as new ideas. Background. Light is the key to vision. The photons emitted from a light source bounce off of objects and eventually hit you in the eye.

When a photon reaches your eye it passes through the transparent cornea and then through the lens which refracts and focuses the light onto your retina, where the light is selectively detected and absorbed by special photoreceptor cells: the rods.
