Beschreibung

To generate coherent behavior, 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, and
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.

Pressestimmen

We warmly recommend this book for experimental psychologists with an interest in attention, action and cognitive neuroscience. It has intrigued us, as it takes a very frugal perspective that leads to profound and very promising new insights: Attention and action are closely interconnected systems, and the links between them can be explored in cognitive neuroscience. It leaves us quite satisfied and curious for further findings and insights that may result from future research in the growing field of cognitive neuroscience.
