Part of the SAGE Library in Cognitive and Experimental Psychology series, Attention is edited by Robert Proctor who's based at one of the leading Cognitive Psychology institutions in the US, Purdue. Research on Attention has links with area of Perception though with very different theoretical roots. It's perhaps the oldest field of research of all topics in this new series, extending back to the start of the last century given its links with each of major cognitive systems associated with the brain - memory, perception, language, learning, thinking and reasoning. As a result it's a core component of any study in Cognitive Psychology throughout the world and receives plenty of research funding. This four-volume set will cover the major works on attention. The articles will include both classics in the field and influential recent studies. Attention will cover: theories of attention; visual attention; auditory and crossmodal attention; and attention in memory and action. The emphasis in the volumes will be on the basic, behavioural studies of attention that make up the foundation of the field. This set will provide a valuable resource not only for libraries but also for students and researchers in psychology.

About Author

Robert Proctor is Professor of Psychology at Purdue University at West Lafayette. He received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Texas at Arlington in 1975. Dr. Proctor has been teaching and conducting research in the field of attention and human performance for nearly 30 years. He conducts research on basic and applied aspects of human performance, with an emphasis on stimulus-response compatibility effects and the relation between perception and action. Dr. Proctor is member of several journal editorial boards. He has co-authored four books and co-edited two. Attention: Theory and Practice is his second book with Dr. Addie Johnson; the first, Skill Acquisition and Human Performance, was published by Sage in 1995. Together, these two authors brought an integrated perspective and broad experience to bear in crafting this book. Dr. Proctor is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society and an honorary fellow of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.
