Handbook of Perception and Action is a three-volume set that, in addition to giving overviews of the state-of-the-art in these two areas, also stresses the functional relationships between them.
This, the third volume, deals with the fascinating topic of attention. Most of the chapters can be subdivided into three groups dealing with information intake, central control functions, and the intensity aspect. Additionally there is a chapter on brain potentials which reflects the prospects of electrophysiological techniques. The final theoretical chapter overviews topics from the nine previous chapters in a search for communalities and divergencies. The diversity of approaches found in this volume reflects the ubiquity of the selective and control mechanisms that make up "attention".
This volume, together with the accompanying volumes on perception and action, will be of great interest and use to researchers, technicians, graduate students and final-year undergraduates, technicians, graduate students and final-year undergraduates in psychology, development psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience.
