This [course_title] describes the underlying structure of the human visual system the performance of those structures and the system as a whole and introduces psychophysical techniques used to measure them. The visual system’s optical and neural systems responsible for collecting and detecting spatial-temporal and spectral signals from the environment are described. The sources and extent of limitations in the subsystems are described and discussed in terms of the enabling limitations that allow practical imaging systems.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
