Oxford Series in Visual Cognition RSS

The field of visual cognition brings together experimental, computational and neuroscientific perspectives in an attempt to understand vision, particularly high-level vision. Research topics include the perception of properties such as depth, motion, color, texture, symmetry and surfaces, and the combination of cues relevant to the perception of these properties; perceptual organization, context effects, the operation of visual attention, memory and imagery; the integration of visual information over time, and the associated phenomena of change blindness and change detection; the perception of faces, objects, scenes and words; perceptual plasticity, learning, and expertise in these, and other domains such as reading. Broader issues include the modularity of perception, the integration of vision with other perceptual modalities, and the visual guidance of action. The Oxford Series in Visual Cognition is dedicated to publishing authored and edited books that contain the leading research on these topics. These books will be essential reference works for students and professional researchers in perception, cognitive psychology, computational vision, and the visual neurosciences.
