Attention and Performance XIV

Synergies in Experimental Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, and Cognitive Neuroscience


Attention and Performance XIV, the silver jubilee volume in a renowned series of international symposia on human mental and physical performance, provides a broad, historic, and timely synthesis of the empirical and theoretical ideas on which performance theory now rests.

Extending trends set by earlier symposia volumes, the thirty-five contributions treat topics that are central to a scientific understanding of human performance including visual information processing, selective attention, mental chronometry, learning, memory, and motor control - from the interdisciplinary perspectives of experimental psychology, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and neurophysiology. The assembled tutorials, reviews and previews, new research reports, and critical commentaries ranging from retrospective assessments to forecasts of likely future advances make this major undertaking at once an encyclopedic handbook, memoir, monograph, and text that will serve a multiplicity of needs for workers in a variety of allied disciplines.
