Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Psychophysics is the primary scientific tool for understanding how the physical world of colors, sounds, odors, movements and shapes translates into the sensory world of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell - in other words, how matter translates into mind. This is a timely revision of a unique introduction to the techniques for researching and understanding how the brain translates the external physical world to the internal world of sensation. The revision expands and refines coverage of the basic tools of psychophysics research and better integrates the theory with the supporting software. The new edition continues to be the only book to combine in a single volume the principles underlying the science of psychophysical measurement and the practical tools necessary to analyze data from psychophysical experiments. This book, written in a tutorial style, will appeal to new researchers as well as to seasoned veterans.

This introduction to psychophysics research methods will be of interest to students, scholars and researchers within sensory neuroscience, vision research, behavioral neuroscience, and the cognitive sciences.
