Handbook of Perception and Action: v. 3
Reviewing state-of-the-art research in the areas of perception and action, this work stresses the functional relationships between them. The third work in a three-volume set, this text illustrates the ubiquity of the selective and control mechanisms that make up "attention" by uniting many diverse approaches. In three sections, the book covers information intake, central control functions, and the intensity aspect. An additional chapter on brain potentials reflects the prospects of electrophysiological techniques. The final chapter is a theoretical overview of the book, illustrating the communalities and divergencies.
