Overview

Research has made clear that intellectual tasks are sensitive to interference. Psychological processes including attention, perception, learning, and memory are easily disrupted, and resistance to interference is an important dimension of cognition. The capacity for inhibiting interference differs widely among individuals and as a factor of age and experience. Interference and Inhibition in Cognition presents an overview of research on how inhibition and interference affect cognition, and the factors that influence inhibitory processes and interference sensitivity.
Key Features
* Provides empirical and theoretical perspectives
* Discusses how inhibition and interference change with age and experience
* Illustrates the ways in which interference affects language processing, attention, perception, learning, and memory
