How Vision Works
Over the past fifty years, enormous progress has been made in understanding visual mechanisms and treating eye disorders. And yet the scientist is not always aware of the latest clinical advances and the clinician is often not up to date on the basic scientific discoveries. John E. Dowling, a neurosciences research professor at Harvard, examines vision from both perspectives, providing concise descriptions of basic visual mechanisms and related clinical abnormalities. He discusses what could potentially go wrong within our complex visual system, surveys the evolution of our knowledge of vision, and speculates about future advances. Dowling has received numerous awards for his research and has been featured in dozens of medical publications. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a member of the American Philosophical Society.
