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.

A book much more about the path to improving our neurological understanding of the eye than about the hard science of optics itself.

And again, optics and neurology owe an enormous amount to Polaroid founder Edwin Land.
