Attention, Space, and Action by Glyn Humphreys

Book Description

To generate coherent behaviour, the brain needs to attend selectively to the many objects that are present in the environment, but this poses several questions. How does the brain know which objects 'belong together'? How does the information from different senses get combined? How does this help to plan and carry out actions? The subject of attentional mechanisms has a long history in cognitive psychology, as it is the key to making sense of the visual world. However, new developments in cognitive neuroscience, and greater understanding of how attention and action are integrated, have transformed the field. This book is the first to bring together leading researchers to discuss the convergence of experimental findings in the following areas: Visual selective attention Attention and perceptual integration Spatial representation and attention Visual attention and action Control of attention Attention, Space, and Action provides a unique combination of perspectives that will appeal to students and researchers from psychology, neuropsychology, neurophysiology, and neuroanatomy.

Books By Author Glyn Humphreys

Attention in Action by Glyn Humphreys Attention in Action, Paperback (March 2013)

Over the past 40 years much work has assessed how attention modulates perception, but relatively little work has evaluated the role of attention in action. Contributions from prominent international researchers both review the field and present new evidence making this book a useful resource.

Category Specificity in Brain and Mind by Glyn Humphreys Category Specificity in Brain and Mind, Paperback (December 2012)

Drawing on research from a number of different disciplines, this book provides converging evidence as to how knowledge about different categories is represented in the brain, and how this knowledge develops.

Blackwell Handbook of Perception by Glyn Humphreys Blackwell Handbook of Perception, Hardback (January 2001)

This handbook aims to provide a state of the art overview of the field of perception with special emphasis on developments and trends. The book adopts a "tutorial" approach to describing psychophysical and physiological research.
