Color Vision, first published in 2000, gives both the graduate student and the specialist an introduction to and a detailed overview of findings about the molecular genetic, evolutionary, anatomical, physiological, and perceptual aspects of human and primate color vision. No other textbook about human color vision covers so many disciplines nor is so thorough in its treatment.

'… this is an excellent book, I would strongly recommend the book to anyone looking for an over-view of the current state of play in the field of colour research and I would also recommend it as a postgraduate text.' Martin J. Tovée, Trends in NeurosciencesReseña del editor:
Color Vision: From Genes to Perception, first published in 2000, documents the state of understanding about primate color vision in 20 review articles written by 35 leading international experts. The articles range from genes - the molecular genetics of the human cone photopigment genes - to perception - the color processing of complex scenes. Detailed overviews of such basic topics as cone spectral sensitivity and color processing in the retina and cortex are included. Introductions are given to important and innovative technologies such as molecular genetics, anatomical staining, visual psychophysics, intracellular and extracellular physiological recordings, and functional magnetic resonance imaging. Color Vision is intended for graduate students and research specialists. By bringing together scientists from different disciplines, the book will clarify issues of general interest for the expert and non-expert alike.
