Attention: Selection , Awareness, And Control / Edition 1

Through the course of his long and distinguished career, Donald Broadbent has made major and lasting contributions to the field of applied psychology. His immensely important and varied body of work on attentional control of complex tasks, conscious awareness, stress, and the influences attention and selection have upon perceptual processes, was a strong influence on subsequent leaders in the field. Many of these experts address the impact of Broadbent's work on their own investigations in this book, a collection of authoritative, informative reviews as well as an homage to one of the most significant researchers in experimental psychology. It will be of great interest to researchers and students in applied psychology, including those specializing in information processing, human-computer interactions, and industrial/organizational psychology.
