* Provides extensive introductory commentary to orient and guide the reader
* Includes the most recent research results in this field of study


A key property of neural processing in higher mammals is the ability to focus resources by selectively directing attention to relevant perceptions, thoughts or actions. Research into attention has grown rapidly over the past two decades, as new techniques have become available to study higher brain function in humans, non-human primates, and other mammals. Neurobiology of Attention is the first encyclopedic volume to summarize the latest developments in attention research.

An authoritative collection of over 100 chapters organized into thematic sections provides both broad coverage and access to focused, up-to-date research findings. This book presents a state-of-the-art multidisciplinary perspective on psychological, physiological and computational approaches to understanding the neurobiology of attention. Ideal for students, as a reference handbook or for rapid browsing, the book has a wide appeal to anybody interested in attention research.


Students and researchers studying computational, perceptual, and cognitive neuroscience, as well as neuropsychologists.

Quotes and reviews

"4 STARS! - If there is one book to own on the topic of attention, this is it. Although it is not difficult to find books written on more specific attention topics, this is probably the most complete single volume on the market dedicated to attention."
--Christopher J. Graver, PhD, University of Michigan Health SysteM, in DOODY'S (2005)

"This book will be a standard reference for some time to come in this fascinating and important field."
--Donlin M. Long, in NEUROSURGERY QUARTERLY (2005)

"... this volume would be a valuable addition to the bookshelf of any laboratory concerned with perception and attentional issues. The extensive index also ensures the book is an excellent reference volume, showing once again how issues are represented across each section of the book, from their historical foundations to their standing in computational neuroscience and all of the human neuroscience that transpired in-between. Owing to the immense coverage and depth of this book, it should grab the attention of researchers concerned with neurobiology,experienced and naive alike."
Amanda Ellison, Department of Psychology, Oxford in PERCEPTION, Vol 35 (2006)
