The life of Jan Evangelista Purkinje (1787-1869) has fascinated students from many disciplines. Histologists marvel at his early descriptions of cells; physiologists admire his attempts to relate structure to function; pharmacologists view in awe his hero

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection of articles from the last twenty years of the Science Times section of The New York Times newspaper on discoveries made about the physiology, psychology, and neurology of the brain, with chapters on senses, emotions, mood, memory, language, consciousness, dreams, medicine, and more
The moving tablet of the eye : the origins of modern eye movement research by Nicholas J Wade( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tracing the history of eye movement research, this work shows how great strides were made in this area before modern recording devices were available, especially in the measurement of nystagmus
Galileo's visions : piercing the spheres of the heavens by eye and mind by Marco Piccolino( Book )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a fascinating and accessible style, Marco Piccolino and Nick Wade analyse the scientific and philosophical work of Galileo Galilei from the particular viewpoint of his approach to the senses (and especially vision) as a means of acquiring trustworthy knowledge about the constitution of the world. For Galileo evidence from the senses was potentially ambiguous, hence reliable information capable of penetrating the complexity of reality could only be obtained by interpreting the sensory data critically. The philosophical background of Galileo's attitude to the senses was his awareness that nature had not developed a specific language aimed at communicating with senses generally and human senses in particular. Galileo's analysis of the senses corresponded closely to a fundamental tenet of modern sensory physiology and psychophysics - the absence in the world of specific sensory signals like sounds, colours, tastes, and odours."--Publisher's description

2 editions published in 2002 in Chinese and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Helmholtz's treatise on physiological optics by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Helmholtz' 'Popular Scientific Lectures' have spread his fame far and wide among educated people everywhere. While he was professor at Heidelberg and still a comparatively young man, nearly three-score years ago he composed the preface to the first edition of his monumental work on light and vision, in all their intricate and manifold relations to each other; and already considerably more than a decade has passed since the publication of the posthumous third edition of the Physiologische Optik which was brought up to date and greatly enlarged under the collaboration of Nagel, Gullstrant and v. Kries. Yet in all these years there has been no English translation of this great classical treatise; and unfortunately no similar work in English of any kind. It is interesting to note that both Young and Helmholtz, the two great pioneers in Physiological Optics, started on their careers in the medical profession, and each of them afterwards gained his greatest renown in Physics. Apart from its own intrinsic value, the treatise on Physiological Optics is a model of scientific method and logical procedure that has hardly ever been excelled in these respects"--Preface.

Destined for distinguished oblivion : the scientific vision of William Charles Wells (1757-1817) by Nicholas Wade( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The emergence of experimental studies of vision can be traced to the adoption of Newtonian methods of observation and experiment, and in their application to space perception by Wells (1792). His initial researches were concerned principally with binocular vision, but he also conducted experimental studies of accommodation, acuity, eye movements, and vertigo. With regard to the last, he entered into a debate with Erasmus Darwin concerning the involvement of eye movements in vertigo. Indeed, Wells should be acknowledged as laying the foundations for modern studies of vestibular function as well as eye movements. The book reprints his Essay on single vision with two eyes (1792) and his own Memoir of his life (1818). Wells also outlined a theory of natural selection before Charles Darwin and provided an account of the formation of dew. His essay on natural selection is reprinted as an Appendix to the book. Wells' experiments and observations on natural phenomena will surprise students of science because of their modernity

Perception and illusion historical perspectives by Nicholas Wade( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mind and body the theories of their relation by Alexander Bain( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Many persons, mocking, ask--What has Mind to do with brain substance, white and gray? Can any facts or laws regarding the spirit of man be gained through a scrutiny of nerve fibres and nerve cells? The question, whatever may be insinuated in putting it, is highly relevant, and raises great issues. The conceivable answers are various and are discussed in this book"--Chapter.

The functions of the brain by David Ferrier( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"My chief object in this book has been to present to the student of physiology or psychology a systematic exposition of the bearing of my own experiments on the functions of the brain. To do this satisfactorily I have thought it necessary to consider the functions of the cerebro-spinal system in general, with the view more especially of pointing out the mutual relations between the higher and the lower nerve centres. Throughout I have aimed at a concise digest rather than an encyclopedic account of the various researches by which our knowledge of the brain and spinal cord have been built up"--Preface.
