Research in the U.S.S.R. on the Physiology of Vision


    THE physiology of vision has always held a peculiar fascination for the physiological theorist, but recently the urgency of immediate practical problems, brought to a focus by the War, has led to a renewed and more direct approach both in this country and abroad. Recent Russian work in this field is published in Problemy Physiologitcheshy Optiky, 2 (Moscow, 1944), which contains sixteen papers from eleven different laboratories. The papers are in Russian, but a generous English abstract of each is given.
