The Blackwell Handbook of Sensation and Perception

E. Bruce Goldstein
Perception, Sensation

This handbook surveys the field of perception, including vision, hearing, taste, olfaction, and cutaneous sensibility. Covering a field as vast as perception in one volume is a challenge, because it involves selection – first, of the chapters to be included in the Table of Contents, and then, of the material to be included within each of these chapters. In creating the Table of Contents, my goal was to include a chapter on each of the basic perceptual qualities plus a few chapters on topics that cut across senses, such as coding, development, sense interactions, and modularity.
