In this widely cited volume, Professor Posner describes a unified experimental approach to the study of the mind based on experiments concerning the time course of human information processing. Drawing systematically on studies of performance, subjective experience, and brain processes, he develops relationships between cognitive psychology and neuroscience. Professor Posner has written a new preface for the paperback edition.
"Remarkable...Will be required reading for all advanced students of cognitive psychology, and it is a necessary source for anyone who plans to teach this subject to undergraduates: Posner treats central topics of cognitive psychology, and his point of view on each topic is anchored in an elegant research design and buttressed by a substantial mass of novel data...Novel experimental ideas in impressive number are developed and illustrated in the book. Posner belongs to the elite of paradigm-makers in psychology, the designers of the conceptual and experimental tools that allow new answers to be found and thereby define the questions that are worth asking...Psychological investigations of attention and consciousness will bear for many years the distinctive imprint of the concepts and methods collected in this valuable book."--Contemporary Psychology "This is a paperback edition of the 1978 book of the same name, and it seems very much as though the new printing signifies both the popularity and importance of the original work."--The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology
