New Book: Perceptual Coherence
Oxford University Press has just published my new book: Perceptual Coherence,
Hearing and Seeing. I think of this as being a ?bridge? book in two senses.
First, it bridges audition and vision and nearly every chapter has material on
both senses. In all honesty, probably there is more material on vision than
audition. Second, it bridges introductory courses in sensation and perception,
sensory physiology, or neuroscience with advanced courses in audition (e.g.
Hartmann, 1998) or vision (e.g., Wandell (1995), Dayan & Abbott, 2001).

The hardback is priced at $ 89.95, but Oxford has a 20% discount until
September 1 making the price $ 72.00 .
Although I have not been an active participant in the on-line discussions, I
have followed them closely and many of the responses have influenced my
writing. Many thanks.
