The first book-length collection of papers presented at a Flowerree Symposium, this volume provides an in-depth analysis of a variety of the newest and most critical empirical and theoretical issues in the study of human cognition. These include models of human category learning, models of memory, implicit memory and knowledge, dynamic decision behavior, effects of test and item presentation methods, visual inputs, and contexts. An essential reference for professionals and ideal for use as a textbook by both advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
