NEI Past Publications

A number of past NEI publications which may be of general interest to the vision research community are now available in a PDF format. Please email Dr. Michael A. Steinmetz at if you would like to receive a copy. (The originals of several of these documents are old mimeographs. Quasi-legible pages result from poor quality originals, not from the scanning process.)
