"I think the book's primary strengths are its attention to detail and willingness to tackle difficult topics and offer very good explanations and analogies."
— STEVEN HAASE, University of Wisconsin at Madison
"I'm very sympathetic to the goal of this book in taking an enhanced multidisciplinary approach to the area of Sensation/Perception, with particular emphasis on the neuroscience background. Also commendable is the detailed treatment of sense modalities other than vision and audition."
— MICHAEL SLOANE, University of Alabama at Birmingham
"I like the general tone of the book. The overall approach and the metaphors are quite nice."
— BRUCE HALPERN, Cornell University
This core text emphasizes the underlying neural structures and functions of sensory systems (pain, olfaction, gustation, audition, vision, etc.) and presents this complex material at a level comprehensible to undergraduates as well as beginning graduate students. The text begins with a review of the central nervous system and its sensory components and includes discussions of methodological techniques and procedures used to study sensory processes.
