The Attentive Brain
Of the myriad tasks that the brain has to perform,
perhaps attention is the most crucial. This compendium
contains articles on topics such as cognitive neuroscience
methods, varieties of attention, and attentional
development and pathology. A central thesis of this
book on the cognitive neuroscience of attention
is that attention is not a single entity, but a
finite set of brain processes that interact mutually
and with other brain processes in the performance
of perceptual, cognitive, and motor skills.

"...an excellent overview of the current state of
knowledge in cognitive psychology and the exciting
prospects for the future....Singh and Parasuraman
are to be congratulated for producing a fine volume
that should be of significant value to students
of cognition and human behavior both in India and
in the West."

Human Operators and Automation. Washington DC: National
Automation in air traffic control may increase
efficiency, but it also raises questions about adequate
human involvement. The panel's first volume in a
series on air traffic control automation is Flight
to the Future. This second book focuses on the interaction
of air traffic controllers and pilots, with a growing
network of automated functions in the airspace system
and offers recommendations for development of human-centered
automation. It also explores ways in which technology
can build on human strengths and compensate for
human vulnerabilities; examines how to achieve
better integration of research and development;
and also discusses how to harmonize the wide range
of functions in the national airspace system, with
a detailed review of the free flight initiative.
Parasuraman, R., & Rizzo, M (2007). Neuroergonomics:
The Brain at Work. New York: Oxford University Press.
“Don't be caught without it—Parasuraman, Rizzo, and their colleagues
have organized for us a conceptual framework and its interconnecting
lattices of theory, methodology, and practice. Left unchecked, as
technology's jumps and starts have proven to be, modern society has
lost the bubble on humans' ability to harness its benefits and,
unacceptably, understand and curb its often-multifaceted risks. In
delineating a more fundamental understanding of humans' evolved
cognitive and sensory processes, <I>Neuroergonomics<$> pushes back
with the necessary foundation for positive exploitation of today's
scientific advances. With its convergent-technologies mantra, this
book will be current for years to come. Its examples of application to
automated and hybrid systems, 'agents', and complex-dynamic
human-system interaction tally up to provide several courses' and
disciplines' worth of expertise in one coherent, highly readable
document, sure to be a reference classic.”
Rene Jos. de Pontbriand, Associate Director for Research, U.S. Army
“In this authoritative volume the world of work (ergonomics) meets the
new methods and results that have been developing from cognitive
neuroscience, neuroimaging, and molecular genetics. The chapters
illustrate how this mixture of science and application provides the
potential for designing new technologies and improving their use by
Michael Posner, Professor Emeritus, University of Oregon and Adjunct
Professor, Weill Medical College, Sackler Institute
“Parasuraman and Rizzo have forced us to think about humans at work in
a whole new way. At first the term ‘neuroergonomics’ made me
skeptical, but the book makes clear the importance and timeliness of
this new brain-based perspective. The editors have gathered the key
authors and made a great contribution.”
