After we stroll, force a vehicle, or fly an plane, visible movement is used to manage and advisor our circulation. Optic movement describes the attribute trend of visible movement that arises in those events. This e-book is the 1st to take an in-depth examine the neuronal processing recommendations that underlie the brain's skill to research and use optic circulate for the keep an eye on of self-motion. It does so in various species which use optic move in numerous behavioral contexts. The spectrum levels from flying bugs to birds, greater mammals and guy. The contributions disguise physiological and behavioral reviews in addition to computational versions. Neuronal Processing of Optic Flow presents an authoritative and accomplished evaluation of the present country of study in this subject written by means of a bunch of authors who've made crucial contributions to shaping this box of study over the past ten years.
* presents the 1st distinct assessment of the research of advanced visible movement styles within the brain
* contains physiological, behavioral, and computational points of optic circulation processing
* Highlights similarities and transformations among varied animal species and behavioral tasks
* Covers human sufferers with visible movement deficits
* complements the reader's figuring out with many illustrations
