Vision research is one of the largest and most active areas of brain research. Psychologists, neuroscientists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, computer scientists, and engineers all have an interest in the practical side of the subject. A Practical Guide to Vision Research is a clear and comprehensive laboratory manual providing the detailed information necessary to begin vision research. Spanning the full range of disciplines, this book provides protocols and practical advice on key experimental techniques, along with useful background information. It covers the choice and use of modern light sources and optical components, with particular consideration of how to generate specific colors, and describes the creation and presentation of images, with an emphasis on current computer techniques. It also discusses the design of psychological experiments. Finally, it provides a thorough coverage of all types of physiological measurement, including ERG and evoked potentials, accommodation, eye movements, and pupil diameter. It presents the "tricks of the trade" in vision research, from some of its leading practitioners, of a kind that cannot be found in published papers and are often only acquired through direct experience. Accessible to beginning researchers with little background in optics and electronics, the book is an essential tool for students and a valuable resource for experienced researchers new to the field.

Dr John Robson and Dr Roger Carpenter are based at the Department of Physiology at the University of Cambridge.Review:
"... surprisingly accessible and interesting ... There is a wealth of both background information and practical tips on laboratory setups ... it is a useful reference text for those who are likely to do experiments in physical or physiologic optics." Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology (vol.35,
no. 2, 2000)
"One thing that is remarkable about this book is that no one has tried to produce a similar one before..."
"...a book, which , to the beginner, is an invaluable source of information and to the experienced researcher is a reliable reminder of many of those things which one once knew but has temporarily forgotten or just neglected to learn."
"...it is an unprecedented source of basic information and will be an asset to many vision scientists, whether involved at undergraduate level or in frontline research on the visual system." Brain, 1999
