Overview

Experimental Slips and Human Error: Exploring the Architecture of Volition by Bernard J. Baars

This work makes three valuable contributions to the study of human slips and errors. It presents current data and theory; it is a complete source for the methodology and results of a 15 year laboratory research program; and it explores the overall architecture of voluntary control. Dr. Baars' work will occupy an important position in the renewed interest in the role of concious experience in the nervous system.
