The book discusses the visual system primarily in terms of spatial frequency analysis using a linear systems approach. It reviews evidence supporting a local, patch-by-patch spatial frequency filtering of visual information rather than the global Fourier analysis other researchers have proposed. A separate chapter addresses the special issues surrounding color vision, and a brief, nonmathematical introduction to linear s ... More
