Taylor & Francis, May 13, 1998 - Psychology - 464 pages
This volume describes research and theory concerning the cognitive neuroscience of attention. Filling a key gap, it emphasizes developmental changes that occur in the brain-attention relationship in infants, children, and throughout the lifespan and reviews the literature on attention, development, and underlying neural systems in a comprehensive manner.
Special features include:
* a new model of the neural control of eye movements;
* a developmental perspective on the burgeoning literature on the cognitive neuroscience of attention;
* the integration of ideas, research, and theories across chapters within each section via summary and commentary essays; and
* a summary of the most recent work in the developmental cognitive neuroscience of attention by several of the leading researchers in this field.
