The goal of this book is to enable the reader to become a practicing psychophysics researcher. This book takes an integrated theoretical approach to understanding perceptual systems and human information processing. Most of the examples in the book have focused on the measurement and testing of basic properties of visual functions. These examples show research principles that may be widely exploited by using the same or very similar test designs, analyses, and adaptive testing methods to research questions in many different applications. The current chapter outlines possible applications using a common philosophy, experimental approach, and computational method in a variety of domains and highlights future directions in neuropsychophysics that integrate psychophysics, neurophysiology, and computational modeling in vision research.

Keywords:   Human performance, Visual function, Clinical vision, Visual deficits, Individual differences, Human factors, Visual cognition, Neuropsyhophysics, Biomedical research
