Temporal Sampling and Representation Updating, Volume 236, addresses the gap between laboratory studies using static or predictable stimuli and the more complex change that is a characteristic of the real world. Topics in this new volume include a section on Unfolding the time course of emotion perception, Temporal sampling and representation updating for action in interception and grasping tasks, The influence of Cognitive Control and Attention on Temporal Sampling: Lessons from the Attentional Blink, Synchronizing tracking eye movements with the motion of a visual target, and Sampling feature distributions with visual search in heterogeneous displays.

Key Features

  • Contains contributions from experts in diverse fields relating to temporal sampling and representation updating
  • Addresses the way in which we update our representations of the world when it is more unpredictable
  • Bridges the gap between laboratory studies using static or predictable stimuli and the more complex change that is a characteristic of the real world as it unfolds over time


Academics from undergraduate level to active researchers in the field: anyone with an interest in how the brain allows us to continuously update our representations of the world in terms of perceptual, memory-related or cognitive processes
