Computational Neuroscience of Vision

Edmund Rolls and Gustavo Deco


This book presents the highly complex subject of vision, focusing on the visual information processing and computational operations in the visual system that lead to representations of objects in the brain. In addition to visual processing, it also considers how visual inputs reach and are involved in the computations underlying a wide range of behaviour, thus providing a foundation for understanding the operation of a number of different brain systems.

Keywords: vision, visual processing, computational operations, visual inputs, behaviour, brain systems, attention, memory, emotion, motivation
