Description - Attention by Arthur F. Kramer

Attention has been one of the most popular subjects in basic cognitive-psychology research, and so its study has generated much empirical data and many theoretical explanations. It has also become a very important factor for those who study how we interact with technological systems and environments. How can these researchers in human-technology interaction take advantage of all the knowledge amassed on attention in basic-science research? This volume addresses this question by bringing together the leading researchers who have pursued both the development of models and theories of attention and their application to investigating and solving practically relevant problems in areas such as aircraft and automobile design, technology applications for health care settings and the home, and adapting technology for the aging population. The volume will include a comprehensive introduction on briding theory and practice in the psychology of attention and a conclusion outlining a future research agenda.
