    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 47.95

    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$ 54.95

    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$ 54.95

    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$ 47.95

    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$ 54.95

    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$ 47.95

    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...

  • Proceedings of the International Workshop on Applications of Neural Networks to Telecommunicationsby Joshua Alspector; Rodney Goodman; Timothy X. Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    The world is witnessing the rapid evolution of its own nervous system by an unparalleled growth in communication technology. Like the evolution of the nervous systems in animals, this growth is being driven by a survival-of-the-fittest-mechanism. In telecommunications, the entities that fuel this growth are companies and nations who compete with each... more...

  • Introduction to Memory Development During Childhood and Adolescenceby Wolfgang Schneider; Michael Pressley

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 30.95

    Memory development has been a central topic in developmental psychology for the past 30 years. This volume summarizes the research achievements during that era and relates those achievements to work on memory development conducted throughout the 20th century. An abridgement of Schneider and Pressley's previous work ( Memory Development Between Two... more...

  • Intersections in Basic and Applied Memory Researchby David G. Payne; Frederick G. Conrad

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 47.95

    In recent years there has been increasing interaction between basic and applied memory researchers, ranging from heated debates to highly productive collaborations. This collection of papers -- based on presentations at the Third Practical Aspects of Memory conference -- reviews the progress, as well as obstacles to progress, in the ongoing collaboration... more...

  • Knowledge Representationby Arthur B. Markman

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 63.95

    Knowledge representation is fundamental to the study of mind. All theories of psychological processing are rooted in assumptions about how information is stored. These assumptions, in turn, influence the explanatory power of theories. This book fills a gap in the existing literature by providing an overview of types of knowledge representation techniques... more...
