Attention by Robert W. Proctor

Book Description

Part of the "SAGE Library in Cognitive and Experimental Psychology" series, "Attention" is edited by Robert Proctor who's based at one of the leading Cognitive Psychology institutions in the US, Purdue. Research on Attention has links with area of Perception though with very different theoretical roots. It's perhaps the oldest field of research of all topics in this new series, extending back to the start of the last century given its links with each of major cognitive systems associated with the brain - memory, perception, language, learning, thinking and reasoning. As a result it's a core component of any study in Cognitive Psychology throughout the world and receives plenty of research funding. This four-volume set will cover the major works on attention. The articles will include both classics in the field and influential recent studies. "Attention" will cover: theories of attention; visual attention; auditory and cross modal attention; and attention in memory and action. The emphasis in the volumes will be on the basic, behavioural studies of attention that make up the foundation of the field. This set will provide a valuable resource not only for libraries but also for students and researchers in psychology.
