Studies in Cognition


About the Series

Over the past 20 years enormous advances have been made in our understanding of basic cognitive processes concerning issues such as: What are the basic modules of the cognitive system? How can these modules be modelled? How are the modules implemented in the brain? The book series "Students in Cognition" seeks to provide state-of-the-art summaries of this research, bringing together work on experimental psychology with that on computational modelling and cognitive neuroscience. Each book contains chapters written by leading figures in the field, which aim to provide comprehensive summaries of current research. The books should be both accessible and scholarly and be relevant to undergraduates, post-graduates, and research workers alike.
