This book is concerned with selected subjects in the general area of visual perception and sensation. Among the topics considered are visual acuity, space perception, color vision, adaptation, flicker, and illusions. These subjects are discussed primarily from the point of view of psychophysics at an elementary level. Many simple experiments are illustrated or described clearly to demonstrate various phenomena. The material is easily readable and written informally.

This volume will be of value primarily to undergraduate students in perceptual psychology, and perhaps also to students of other disciplines, including residents in ophthalmology, who desire an introduction to this aspect of physiological optics.
