This new benchmark publication comes from one of the world's foremost researchers on vision and the brain. The cerebal cortex is the most complicated piece of matter in the known universe, and is responsible for all the higher behavioral functions that help define us as human.
A Vision of the Brain is the most sustained attempt made so far to explain how the cortex works both with specific reference to vision, and generally. At a level accessible to those beginning studies in neuroscience, this exciting book explores the unfolding of our understanding, as a detective story, of how the visual cortex works, which in turn gives us a vision of how the brain works as a whole. Illustrated throughout in two colors, and examining both normal and abnormal functions, this book will be of major interest to neurologists, psychologists, ophthalmologists and neuroscientists.

". Professor Semir Zeki has pioneered in the analysis of parallel processing in the visual system: how the different components of our visual world - the color, movement, and form of a visual scene - are analyzed in different regions of the brain. In this delightful and highly readable book, Professor Zeki gives a personal accounting of his voyage of discovery and does so in the context of the major intellectual and philosophical issues that have confronted the study of vision historically. This book is ideal for the beginning student because it is so accessible, but it will also be read for profit by scholars in philosophy, psychology and in the neural sciences. It is at once a great read and an introduction to the modern neurological underpinnings of visual perception."
