The newly launched Macquarie Monographs in Cognitive Science series will publish original monographs dealing with any aspect of cognitive science. Each volume in the series will cover a circumscribed topic, and will provide readers with summary of the current state-of-the-art in that field. A primary aim of volumes is also to advance research and knowledge in the field through discussion of new theoretical and experimental advances.
