Handbook of Human Performance: v.1-3
This three-volume set addresses the effects of body state upon performance. The contributions encompass contemporary views of the effects of agents as diverse as shift work, noise, and viral infections. Their effects are examined on a range of motor and cognitive behaviours which have theoretical relevance as well as a direct impact on practice at the workplace.
