  • Life-Span Maintenance of Knowledgeby Harry P. Bahrick; Lynda K. Hall; Melinda K. Baker

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 59.95

    This volume describes how well we maintain the knowledge we acquire throughout life. Research traditionally focuses on memory for events that are retained over short time periods that can be accommodated in experiments. This book, by contrast, uniquely describes the evolution of methods suitable for investigating memory of complex knowledge acquired... more...

  • Expertise and Technologyby Jean-Michel Hoc; Pietro C. Cacciabue; Erik Hollnagel; P. Carlo Cacciabue

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 110.00

    Technological development has changed the nature of industrial production so that it is no longer a question of humans working with a machine, but rather that a joint human machine system is performing the task. This development, which started in the 1940s, has become even more pronounced with the proliferation of computers and the invasion of digital... more...

  • Consciousness in Philosophy and Cognitive Neuroscienceby Antti Revonsuo; Matti Kamppinen

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 110.00

    Consciousness seems to be an enigmatic phenomenon: it is difficult to imagine how our perceptions of the world and our inner thoughts, sensations and feelings could be related to the immensely complicated biological organ we call the brain. This volume presents the thoughts of some of the leading philosophers and cognitive scientists who have recently... more...

  • Neural Network Computing for the Electric Power Industryby Dejan J. Sobajic

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 60.00

    Power system computing with neural networks is one of the fastest growing fields in the history of power system engineering. Since 1988, a considerable amount of work has been done in investigating computing capabilities of neural networks and understanding their relevance to providing efficient solutions for outstanding complex problems of the electric... more...

  • Psychophysicsby George A. Gescheider

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 115.00

    This third edition of a classic text which was first published in 1976 is the only comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of psychophysics currently available. It has been used by undergraduate and graduate students, and scholars throughout the world and is consistently thought of as the best single source for learning the basic principles of psychophysics.... more...

  • Picture Perception in Animalsby Joel Fagot

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 125.00

    Animal researchers commonly present pictures to their subjects, usually birds or monkeys, in order to infer how natural objects are perceived and conceptualised, or to discover the brain mechanisms underlying these abilities. This unique book questions the premise of this experimental approach and asks whether or not pictures can be considered as ecologically... more...

  • Philosophy and Connectionist Theoryby William Ramsey; David E. Rumelhart; Stephen P. Stich

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 115.00

    The philosophy of cognitive science has recently become one of the most exciting and fastest growing domains of philosophical inquiry and analysis. Until the early 1980s, nearly all of the models developed treated cognitive processes -- like problem solving, language comprehension, memory, and higher visual processing -- as rule-governed symbol manipulation.... more...

  • Beliefs, Reasoning, and Decision Makingby Roger C. Schank; Ellen Langer

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 125.00

    It is not unusual for a festschrift to include offerings from several areas of study, but it is highly unusual for those areas to cross disciplinary lines. This book, in doing just that, is a testimony to Bob Abelson's impact on the disciplines of social psychology, artificial intelligence and cognitive science, and the applied areas of political psychology... more...

  • Goal-based Decision Makingby Stephen Slade

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 100.00

    This work presents a goal-based model of decision making in which the relative priorities of goals drive the decision process -- a psychological alternative to traditional decision analysis. Building on the work of Schank and Abelson, the author uses goals as the basis for a model of interpersonal relations which permits decisions to incorporate personal... more...

  • A Symbolic and Connectionist Approach To Legal Information Retrievalby Daniel E. Rose

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 95.00

    Many existing information retrieval (IR) systems are surprisingly ineffective at finding documents relevant to particular topics. Traditional systems are extremely brittle, failing to retrieve relevant documents unless the user's exact search string is found. They support only the most primitive trial-and-error interaction with their users and are... more...
