This state–of–the–art handbook provides an authoritative overview of the field of perception, with special emphasis on new developments and trends. The volume adopts a ′tutorial′ approach to describing psychophysical and physiological research, and features chapters on visual perception, auditory perception, somesthesis and the chemical senses, development and sense interactions. Each chapter has been written by leading researchers, specially chosen for their expertise and specialist knowledge. The chapters have been fully referenced and include suggested readings for easy access to further study.

The Blackwell Handbook of Perception is ideal for upper level students looking for succinct overviews and for researchers wanting to know more about current research and future trends.
