Most widely held works by David H Hubel
Eye, brain, and vision by David H Hubel( Book )

49 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows how science is constructing a wiring diagram of the visual path, shows about the structure of receptors in the retina, through the peanut-size clusters of cells known as the lateral geniculate bodies, to the striate cortex-- the first of many higher areas devoted to vision and the part of the brain that is now best understood. Introduces the remarkable geometric patterns that result from the surprising tendency of cells with related functions to be organized in sheets, columns, blobs, and stripes
Brain and visual perception : the story of a 25-year collaboration by David H Hubel( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book about the collaboration between Hubel and Wiesel, which began in 1958, lasted until about 1982, and led to a Nobel Prize in 1981. It opens with short autobiographies of both men, describes the state of the field when they started, and tells about the beginnings of their collaboration." "This book will appeal to neuroscientists, vision scientists, biologists, psychologists, physicists, historians of science, and to their students and trainees, at all levels from high school on, as well as to anyone else who is interested in the scientific process."--Jacket
Vision and art : the biology of seeing by Margaret Livingstone( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book demonstrates that how we see art depends ultimately on the cells in our eyes and our brains. This new expanded edition thoroughly updates this groundbreaking study with the latest findings gathered from the author's research, with 32 additional pages of new text and images, including 3 brand new chapters. This book begins by offering a comprehensive account of the biology of vision, drawing on the history of science and the author's own cutting edge discoveries. This book then turns to art and delves into the science underlying various phenomena in painting, using many examples from the mysterious allure of the Mona Lisa to the amazing atmospheric effects of the impressionists to illustrate her points. Along the way, this book shows how similar effects can be used to enhance the impact of advertisements, and explores the different ways images look in paintings, in photographs, on TV, and on computer screens. Accompanying Livingstone's lively and lucid prose are many easy to understand charts and diagrams that clarify her points. Some of these illustrations are based on simple and elegant experiments that show us how the human visual system translates light into color. Others demonstrate how cells in the retina code information and send it to the brain. Still others shed light on how great painters devise techniques to fool the eye into seeing depth and movement. By skillfully bridging the space between science and art, Vision and Art will arm artists and designers with new techniques that they can use in their own craft and thrill any reader with an interest in the biology of human vision

Neural mechanisms of color vision : double-opponent cells in the visual cortex by Bevil R Conway( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Conway mapped the spatial and temporal structure of the cone inputs to single neurons in the primary visual cortex of the alert macaque. Color cells had receptive fields that were often Double-Opponent, an organization of spatial and chromatic opponency sufficient to form the basis for color constancy and spatial color contrast. Almost all color cells gave a bigger response to color when preceded by an opposite color, suggesting that these cells also encode temporal color contrast. In sum, color perception is likely subserved by a subset of specialized neurons in the primary visual cortex. These cells are distinct from those that likely underlie form and motion perception. Color cells establish three color axes sufficient to describe all colors; moreover these cells are capable of computing spatial and temporal color contrast - and probably contribute to color constancy computations - because the receptive fields of these cells show spatial and temporal chromatic opponency

Receptive fields of optic nerve fibers in the spider monkey( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Receptive fields of retinal ganglion cells were studied in the light-adapted spider monkey. All fields mapped with white light had a concentric arrangement sililar to that of the cat retinal ganglion cells, with a sharply demarcated 'on' centre surrounded by an antagonistic 'off' periphery, or the reverse. The smallest receptive field centres were found near the fovea, and the size of centres tended to increase with increasing distance from the fovea. The smallest centre had a diameter of 4 minutes of arc (corresponding to about 20 microns on the retina) and was located 4 degrees from the fovea; the largest centre had a diameter of 2 degrees. Three ganglion cells out of about 100 responded in a specific way to coloured stimuli. In these cells light of short wave-length produced an 'on' response and light of long wave-length evoked inhibition followed by an 'off' response. Transition between the two types of response occurred at about 500 millimicrons, light of this wave-length evoked only feebel 'off' responses. Very weak responses were obtained to white light, presumably owing to the antagonism between light of short and long wavelengths. (Author)
