Took me back to when I, briefly, subscribed to Scientific American. Mostly over my head, but what few strands of pasta stuck to the wall were fascinating. As an owner/operator I am generally interested in brain function and will continue to read up on the topic. I can imagine returning to this volume again.
David Hubel's very clear overview of vision is worth a read. I used this book as a starting textbook for a class. They loved it. In part because you can access the entire book online for FREE. The book is out of print, and is available from David Hubel's website.
