Abstract

The present book aims to set out an overview of current research and dominant theories on human attention. It presents a comprehensive view of the current state of theory in the field of attention by including the measurement of attention and the neuropsychology of attention. It also discusses the relationship between attention and new media. The title of this book includes the word “today”, because we sought to address recent trends and potential future directions in the field of human attention. This book is organized into four chapters. The first chapter explores the theoretical models of attention, from historical theories to current research. The second chapter analyses the measurements of attention, with particular reference to paradigms that have been used to study the visual and auditory attention. The third chapter focus on two aspects: the neural basis of attention and the electrophysiology, distinguishing the different functions of attention. The last chapter considers the interactions between attention and new media, in particular: television, smarthphone, computer and videogames. The book was written so clearly and provided so much information that both the novice and expert could understand and learn much from reading it. It is aimed at both students, researcher, but also professionals in healthcare, education, social-care and related fields.
