Summary
"In recent years the application of our knowledge of cognitive processes has been of major interest to many cognitive psychologists. Surprisingly, no book has yet been published on the subject for upper-undergraduate/graduate level courses. Applied Cognitive Psychology: A Textbook examines in depth the major topics of applied cognitive topics, such as enhancing cognition in cognitive engineering, cognitive rehabilitation, computer graphics, driving, education, eyewitness testimony, human-computer interfaces, manufacturing, medical practice, surveys, the law, and much more. These topics come alive through examples provided by the authors, who have all been actively involved in the development of applied cognitive psychology." "The book also looks in depth at the major methodological issues raised by research conducted in the real world as well as the social and institutional factors that can inhibit applied research. It reviews a range of cognitive products, technologies, and services developed by applied cognitive research. In summary, this textbook facilitates both future understanding and applications of cognitive psychology. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
