Book Description

The theory of information integration provides a unified, general approach to the three disciplines of cognitive, social, and developmental psychology. Each of these volumes illustrates how the concepts and methods of this experimentally-grounded theory may be productively applied to core problems in one of these three disciplines.

"Anderson's work has contributed immensely to the credibility of the simple models of 'cognitive algebra'. He has shown that it is possible to derive quite workable measurement methods for psychological phenomena, and at the same time to investigate the integration processes in-depth. This book argues very effectively for his standpoint, and in highly interesting application chapters, it demonstrates what can be achieved."
