    Developmental Psychology: From infancy to childhood
    Fitting the mind to the world explores the brain's remarkable capacity to adapt to its current visual environment. Leading vision researchers explore how visual experience alters the adult brain, fitting the mind to the world, and ensuring the efficient coding of sensory signals. They demonstrate how this plasticity affects every aspect of our visual experience, from the perception of movement and color, to the perception of subtle, social and emotional information in human faces.
