The New Visual NeurosciencesJohn S Werner and Leo M Chalupa
MIT Press, 2014
Call number: WW 103 N5321
Visual science is the model system for neuroscience, its findings relevant to all other areas. This essential reference to contemporary visual neuroscience covers the extraordinary range of the field today, from molecules and cell assemblies to systems and therapies. It provides a state-of-the art companion to the earlier book The Visual Neurosciences (MIT Press, 2003). This volume covers the dramatic advances made in the last decade, offering new topics, new authors, and new chapters.
The New Visual Neurosciences assembles groundbreaking research, written by international authorities. Many of the 112 chapters treat seminal topics not included in the earlier book. These new topics include retinal feature detection; cortical connectomics; new approaches to mid-level vision and spatiotemporal perception; the latest understanding of how multimodal integration contributes to visual perception; new theoretical work on the role of neural oscillations in information processing; and new molecular and genetic techniques for understanding visual system development. An entirely new section covers invertebrate vision, reflecting the importance of this research in understanding fundamental principles of visual processing. Another new section treats translational visual neuroscience, covering recent progress in novel treatment modalities for optic nerve disorders, macular degeneration, and retinal cell replacement. The New Visual Neurosciences is an indispensable reference for students, teachers, researchers, clinicians, and anyone interested in contemporary neuroscience.
This title can be found in the new books section at the MNIH Library.

Dr. Richard Hoge received a B.Sc. with honours in Physics at Carleton University in 1989, followed by an M.Sc. in Medical Physics at McGill University in 1996. He completed a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at McGill in 1999, followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard University until 2001. Following his fellowship, he held an Instructorship in Radiology at Harvard and was Affiliated Faculty Member at MIT until 2006. Dr. Hoge is currently an Associate Professor in Neuroscience and Radiology at Université de Montréal, leading the development of new MRI technologies for imaging physiological processes in the brain and the application of these to the study of cognitive decline in healthy aging and neurodegenerative disease. Prior to commencing graduate studies at McGill, he worked in several branches of the Canadian Federal Government (Constable/investigator in RCMP; contract positions in Department of Justice, Department of Foreign Affairs, Canadian International Development Agency). He has also worked as a consultant in commercial sectors including the pharmaceutical, medical device, and computer industries.

Date: Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: de Grandpre Communications Centre
The BIC Lecture Series features informal lectures on brain imaging presented at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC) by experts in the field. These lectures are open to all. This semester, the BIC Lecture Series is being held in conjunction with Human Brain Imaging (NEUR-570), an introductory course on modern brain imaging.
Please join us for our next BIC Lecture of the season, which will be held in The Neuro’s de Grandpré Communications on Monday December 2nd starting at 1:00 pm.
At that time, Dr. Jorge Armony will be providing an introduction to fMRI analysis of evoked responses.
Please note that, as you can see below (in red), Dr. Rick Hoge will be presenting a related lecture (“Exploring the role of neurovascular and metabolic physiology in cognitive decline using new quantitative fMRI methods”) in the same room on that morning starting at 9:00 am.
