Great site for everything about vision - photochemistry, anatomy, and physiology.
|Illusions and aftereffects by Dr. Michael Bach |
Awesome page! Start at the beginning - the one in the upper left of the table of icons at right - and try them all! Excellent excuse for constructive procrastination if you have lots of other work.
|Receptive fields - nice visualizations of responses of center-surround receptive fields from Sinauer Associates|
|Lectures on vision by Dr. Jeremy Nathans |
Lectures 1A and 1B are on the structure and information processing in the vertebrate retina.Lecture 2 is about the neural and molecular mechanisms of color vision.Lecture 3 is about the evolution of 3-pigment color vision (i.e. the kind that only fish and old-world primates, such as humans, have).
|Visual chemistry site |
From Rachel Casiday and Regina Frey, Department of Chemistry, Washington University St. Louis
|Gary Matthews' neuroscience simulations |
Includes a receptive field mapping simulation.

|"The Joy of Visual Perception," by Peter Kaiser |
See especially the "Fun things in vision" and "Color/Color vision" entries.
|Afterimages from "Sandlot Science." |
The afterimage collection is relevant for our course, but the other pages on the site are also fascinating.
