The latest volume in the critically acclaimed and highly influential Attention and Performance series focuses on a subject at the heart of psychological research into human performance - the interplay between perception and action. What are the mechanisms that translate the information we receive via our senses into physical actions? How do the mechanisms responsible for producing a response from a given stimulus operate? Recently, new perspectives have emerged, drawing on studies from neuroscience and neurophysiology. Within this volume, state of the art and cutting edge research from leading scientists in cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience is presented describing the approaches being taken to understanding the mechanisms that allow us to negotiate and respond to the world around us.
`Reviews from previous editions
'The Attention and Performance series has unfailingly presented the best work in the field'
Stephen Kosslyn, Harvard
`'The most distinguished series in the field of cognitive psychology.''
Claus Bundesen, Copenhagen
`'Held in high esteem throughout the field because of its attention to rigor, quality, and scope... indispensable to anyone who is serious about understanding the current state of the science.''
Mike Jordan, MIT
`'The standard of Attention and Performance is very high. It is fully peer-reviewed, and attracts high citation, almost certainly higher than for any other book series in the field. Effectively it is regarded as an international journal and one of high repute it's a must for all serious research departments to have in their library''
David Milner, Durham
`'This is the most prestigious and highly regarded series of edited volumes on cognitive psychology that exist in the field. Each volume has described research at the cutting edge, and there have been numerous A & P citation classics.''
Jon Driver, University College London
'Over the years Attention and Performance has been the premier series of edited books in the general field of cognitive science many of the most important methods and theories in these fields have been introduced first in Attention and Performance.''
Michael Posner, Oregon
`'The volumes always include contributions from the leaders in the field covered by the particular symposium.''
Jay McClelland, Carnegie Mellon
