About the Author

St Edmund Hall, Oxford.


Although attention research forms a major part of cognitive psychology, students often find it difficult to grasp. This much improved new edition does a brilliant job of introducing attention from scratch, whilst at the same time being comprehensive and in-depth. - "Jan W. de Fockert, Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths College, University of London " The second edition of "The Psychology of Attention represents" a considerable achievement. In this book, Elizabeth Styles gives a thorough and clear review of all of the major issues which cognitive psychologists have addressed in relation to attention over the last half a century. The book covers the standard textbook topics of early versus late selection and feature integration, but it goes on to do much more. Key topics include selection, task combination, the development of skill and automaticity, and the nature of consciousness. It goes well beyond typical textbook treatment. -" Tony Ward, Head of Psychology, Newman College, Birmingham"
