Description - Understanding Driving by John A. Groeger

A hundred years ago virtually nobody drove - indeed very few people had actually travelled at more than twenty miles per hour. A century later only a small minority of adults do not hold driving licences. In this book John Groeger examines what is involved in driving. He identifies the aspects of perception, attention, learning, memory, decision making and action control which are drawn upon in order to enable us to drive, and the brain systems involved in such activities. He also attempts to show us how studying tasks such as driving can help to understand how these fundamental aspects of cognition combine to facilitate performance in complex everyday tasks. In doing so he shows how a very broad range of laboratory-based findings can be applied, and that through our attempts to apply this knowledge to complex everyday tasks we gain, in return, a greater understanding of fundamental aspects of human cognition.
