About the Author:

STEVEN YANTIS is Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Johns Hopkins University, USA. He received a PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Michigan in 1985, and following a year as postdoctoral fellow at Stanford, he joined the JHU faculty in 1986. His research interests focus on cognitive control and selective attention during multitasking by measuring both behavior (response time, eye movements) and brain activity (functional MRI). He received the Early Career Award from the American Psychological Association in 1994 and the Troland Research Award from the National Academy of Sciences in 1996.

Review:

'There are many strengths: pedagogical features such as the vignettes and interspersed review questions. The Applications section at the end of each chapter is a great idea. The book is well-written and probably at just about the right level for my students.' - Dan Swift, University of Michigan-Dearborn, USA 'This is a clearly written text that does an excellent job of presenting classic topics in the field of Sensation and Perception in the context of current research methodology and findings. Yantis has a talent for simplifying the most complicated of topics. The real-life examples and simple demonstrations that are provided throughout the chapter should help students understand difficult concepts.' - Sandra McFadden, Western Illinois University, USA 'A readable text that incorporates the current research with interesting examples of application.' - Barbara Blatchley, Agnes Scott College, USA
