Recensioner i media

Trends in Neuroscience Review from previous edition a comprehensive review of an intriguing topic by a leading investigator in the field... Blindsight is a convenient source-book for multidisciplinary investigators and students with open minds.

Brain extremely clearly written and will be of interest to all clinicians and neuroscientists interested in vision. As an exemplary example of the insights that can arise from the single case study it deserves a wider readership.

Neuropsychologia This book makes very enjoyable reading... the style is entertaining... presentation of the data is original in that it departs from the usual austere psychological format... quantified data are interweaved with other (no less important) aspects of the study: informal attempts, failures, anecdotes and verbal repots from the patient are also included, which gives the book a nice clinical touch... I recommend Blindsight not only to those interested in the study of the
mechanisms of visual perception, but also to those interested in the more general issues of cognitve processing and modular organization of mental functions.

Contemporary Psycology ... a thoughtful and comprehensive analysis of the status of residual vision,..
This monograph is a valuable contribution on a number of grounds.
This clearly written monograph, particularly the third part, provides valuable insights into a wide range of conceptual and methodological problems and is recommended as a useful, challenging, and stimulating contribution for the general reader as well as the vision specialist.
