Advances in Visual Perception Research


Thomas Heinen

Series: Neuroscience Research Progress
BISAC: MED057000

This book provides a state-of-the-art discussion forum for topics that are of high interest in the field of visual perception research. Experts from different countries and different scientific disciplines, such as medicine, psychology, neuroscience, sport and movement science, provide a number of significant contributions, covering recent theoretical developments, innovative methodical developments, current research evidence, as well as implications for practical applications in the field of visual perception.

Topics discussed in the book include the role of importance in visual perception, accuracy and bias in emotion perception, automated vector-based gaze analysis, visual-vestibular interactions when performing complex skills, variability of fixation durations in healthy participants, gaze behavior in subjects with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, perception of moving objects in real life, controlling posture in differing perceptual information situations, orientation matching in perceptual space, error correction on the basis of visual information in sports, visual perceptual learning in cytopathology, visuomotor behavior in virtual reality situtations, role of augmented visual feedback in motor learning, informational domains in integrating information from different sensory sources, and the role of visual inputs in sensorimotor integration. Given the wide range of topics and scientific discliplines, the book “Advances in Visual Perception Research” may be an important source of information for graduate students, researchers and practitioners that study and work in the field of visual perception.

“Advances in Visual Perception Research explores topics that are often not found in the extant literature. From the insanely rapid perception that human’s have when they see a snake or spider to the long duration “quiet eye” of motor experts and the unique contribution of vision to gymnastics and grasping in swaying rooms, this book engages the reader from beginning to end.” – <strong>Joan Vickers, PhD, Professor, Faculty of Kinesiology, University of Calgary, Canada</strong>

“This book represents an excellent collection of prevalent topics in visual perception research. All contributors are distinguished scholars providing comprehensive and up-to-date overviews of the progress in their research fields. This book is a major contribution to our understanding of theories and methods in visual perception research.” – <strong>Norbert Hagemann, PhD, Professor of Sport Psychology, University of Kassel, Germany</strong>

“The book provides a comprehensive coverage and a concise overview of the current status of visual perception research written by leading experts from different scientific disciplines. Advances in Visual Perception Research offers an in-depth understanding and appreciation of the many factors affecting visual perception.” – <strong>Daniel Memmert, PhD, Professor, German Sport University Cologne, Germany</strong>
