Editors: Glenda Andrews and David Neumann (Griffith University Gold Coast, Australia)
Book Description:
Psychological research in perception, learning, memory and cognition seeks to explain human thinking and behavior. This research is relevant to many everyday situations. However, the potential applications of research are often discussed only in general terms. Examining how research in areas such as memory and learning can be applied to everyday situations has the potential to lead to new insights that could ultimately solve many practical issues that exist in society today. This book examines four important areas of functioning: memory performance and how it might be improved; affective functioning with specific reference to anxiety and depression; perceptual functioning in relation to visual discomfort and colour perception; and children’s literacy learning and remediation of reading difficulties.
