Editorial Reviews

Review

"This second edition adds tremendous value to an already excellent text. It presents a solid foundation in physiology and psychology of the senses in a very accessible and engaging manner. It is an excellent choice for introductory as well as advanced courses and has the breadth and depth to serve as a basic reference text for all." - Patrick Cavanagh, Universite Paris Descartes, France and Harvard University, USA

"Mather does an excellent job of bringing the topic of Sensation and Perception to life using many examples from the 'real world' as well as giving a comprehensive overview of both recent and classic experimental findings. The book is highly recommended for students who are new to the topic." - Dr Jamie Ward, University of Sussex, UK

"This is an excellent book with thorough coverage of all five senses grounded in clear descriptions of what is being sensed and why. The book has useful boxes that define key terms and excellent tutorials at the end of each chapter so that students can actively engage with the subject." - Professor Iain D. Gilchrist, University of Bristol, UK

"George Mather did it again! Students of perception will be even happier with this second edition, especially as it now includes state of the art sections on two highly active research areas: multisensory processing and synesthesia. It will also prove to be an excellent source for anyone who is eager to find out about the fundamental role of our senses in perceiving the real and artificial world." - Professor Frans Verstraten, Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Praise for the 1st Edition: "Mather has included some excellent pedagogical features that put this book in a class by itself. ... Moreover, Mather's conversational and interactive style of writing results in a book that is enjoyable as well as informative ... Would I use it for my S&P course? The answer is a resounding 'yes'." - Stephen F. Davis, in PsycCRITIQUES
