Handbook of Learning and Cognitive Processes (Volume 5): Human Information Processing (Hardback)William K. Estes (editor)
- We can order this
Originally published in 1978 Volume 5 of this Handbook reflects a single theoretical orientation, that characterized by the term human information processing in the literature at the time, but which ranges over a very broad spectrum of cognitive activities. The first two chapters give some overall picture of the background, goals, method, and limitations of the information-processing approach. The remaining chapters treat in detail some principal areas of application - visual processing, mental chronometry, representation of spatial information in memory, problem solving, and the theory of instruction.
The first three volumes of the Handbook presented an overview of the field, followed by treatments of conditioning, behavior theory, and human learning and retention. With the fourth volume, the focus of attention shifted from the domain of learning theory to that of cognitive psychology.
