Editorial Reviews

"We do emphatically recommend this volume for those in the fields of cognitive, experimental, and educational psychology. Without exception, the authors present their arguments, theories, and data in a clear and readable fashion. We would also recommend the volume for those teaching courses in cognitive psychology. The volume contains well-structured reviews of current research and theory, as well as proposing future research agendas to answer important questions."--PsycCRITIQUES
