Visual Pattern Analyzers

Norma Van Surdam Graham


From the light that falls on the retina, the visual system must extract meaningful information about what is where in our environment. At an early stage in this process, it analyzes the incoming sensory data along many dimensions of pattern vision. This book describes the current knowledge about this stage of visual processing, focusing both on psychophysical experiments measuring the detection and identification of near-threshold patterns and on the mathematical models used to draw inferences from such experimental results. Neurophysiological evidence is presented and compared critically to t ... More

Keywords: vision, spatiotemporal patterns, psychophysical experiments, mathematical model, neurophysiological, signal detection theory, Fourier analysis, orientation, spatial frequency, direction of motion
