Description

Much research in psychology and neuroscience has focused on how we perceive either static aspects of the world, or aspects that change in very predictable ways, such as when viewing motion that has a constant speed and direction. However, one understudied area is the way in which we update our representations of the world when it is more unpredictable and this often requires sampling over time.

Temporal Sampling and Representation Updating attempts to address this and thereby to help bridge 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.

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

Readership

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
