This edited collection combines contributions from academics and human factor specialists upon the theme of multiple-task performance - the ability of the mind to control several actions simultaneously. Although processes of divided attention have long been a focus for cognitive psychologists, this book concentrates upon the performance of particular tasks concurrently, and how different combinations affect results. Particular implications include workload of pilots and air-traffic controllers. It is aimed at researchers (graduates and postgraduates) in applied and cognitive psychology, ergonomics, behavioural science and aviation psychologists.
