Measuring the Mind

Speed, Control, and Age

Edited by John Duncan, Louise Phillips, and Peter McLeod

What are the fundamental mechanisms of decision making, timing, memory and cognitive control? How do these mechanisms differ in individuals, and how they change as people age? What are the neural mechanisms underlying these functions? How do these functions relate to the demands of everyday, "real life" behavior? This volume brings together leading cognitive psychologists to discuss these topics in both teaching and research. This book will be valuable to students and scientists in experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
