For psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists interested in 'attention', the issue of the 'limits' of our attentional mechanisms is one of great importance and topicality- what are the temporal constraints when we attend to and process information How well can we switch our attention from one task to another, or from one sensory modality to another? In what circumstances can the presentation of one stimulus prevent the recognition of a further stimulus? By seekinganswers to such questions, we can learn a great deal about the systems underlying such attentional processes, develop more accurate models of our attentional mechanisms, and even get closer to answering some of the many outstanding questions about consciousness itself. In The limits of attention,Kimron Shapiro whose own work on the 'attentional blink' is central to this debate, has brought together a high quality team of attention researchers to discuss and debate these issues, key to the study of attention. This is an important book for cognitive psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and philosophers.

The chapters are all very readable, and replete with up-to-date references. This makes the book both an admirable introduction to the topic area and a very useful reference work. I have found it a valuable source of ideas in preparing material on attention for third-level undergraduates; the style of writing recommends the book for inclusion in the reading lists of many courses.
... excellent book.
