Description

This well-established international series examines major areas of basic and clinical research within neuroscience, as well as emerging and promising subfields.

This volume explores interdisciplinary research on Attention and interaction of Attention with other cognitive processes including perception, learning, and memory. The papers cover major research on attention in Cognitive Neuroscience and Cognitive Psychology. The volume presents recent advances on attention including binding, dynamics of attention, attention and perceptual organization, attention and consciousness, emotion and attention, development of attention, crossmodal attention, computational modeling of attention, control of actions, attention and memory, and meditation.

Readership

Those involved in cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience and Computational modeling
