[FoRK] Visual Cortex - Current Status and Perspectives

A freely published book that is a nice update on visual cortex research.  I happened upon chapter 5 which has enough known and 
suspected biological visual mechanisms to directly inspire machine vision mimicry to do some useful things.

> it is fully justified to make an encore and to publish a book dedicated to visual cortex and beyond. Many reasons validate a book 
> assembling chapters written by active researchers. Each has the opportunity to bind together data and explore original ideas whose 
> fate will not fall into the hands of uncompromising reviewers of traditional journals. This book focuses on the cerebral cortex 
> with a large emphasis on vision.
