  1. Cognitive Science

    Cognitive Science

    Edited by Noel Sheehy, Antony J. Chapman
    Cognitive science is the study of intelligence and intelligent systems. Several disciplines including psychology, philosophy, linguistics and the neurosciences have well-established interests in these topics. Cognitive science is an attempt to organise and unify views of thought developed within these distinct disciplines. Cognitive Science is concerned with the construction of abstract theory of intelligent processes, the investigation of human and animal intelligence with the goal of developing a theory of intelligent processes from these observations and the investigation of computational principles that underlie the organisation and behavior of computer programmes. This three volume set presents a careful selection of the most important seminal articles on cognitive science. The editors have prepared a new comprehensive introduction to accompany the volumes.

  2. Ergonomics and Human Factors

    Ergonomics and Human Factors

    Edited by David Oborne
    Ergonomics (ergos – work; nomos – laws) and Human Factors have almost identical characteristics and identities and have both developed in similar ways, within the same period, and for the same reasons. The Ergonomics philosophy is the amalgamation of information from psychology, physiology and engineering to enable the environment to be designed to ‘fit’ the person. Ergonomics and Human Factors evolved at around the time of World War II, when fighting and defensive machines were being built far beyond the capacities and capabilities of the operators. Learn More

    THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ATTENTION

    Edited by Geoffrey Underwood
    This two volume set brings together the key research articles and papers on our basic attentional limitations when listening to two messages spoken at once and the major opposing theories which have sought to account for these limitations. It also includes the evidence which has been used to attempt to distinguish between these theories as well as contemporary analyses of the role of attention in the regulation of verbal and non-verbal behaviour. In addition to milestone research papers which set out our attentional limitations and the major explanations of these limitations, the articles in these two volumes represent contemporary investigations of attention and consciousness by experimental psychologists.
