About the Authors
  • This book examines the major progress made in recent psychological science in understanding the cognitive control of thought, emotion, and behavior and what happens when that control is diminished as a result of aging, depression, developmental disabilities, or psychopathology. Each chapter of this volume reports the most recent research by a leading researcher on the international stage. Topics include the effects on thought, emotion, and behavior by limitations in working memory, cognitive control, attention, inhibition, and reasoning processes. Other chapters review standard and emerging research paradigms and new findings on limitations in cognitive functioning associated with aging and psychopathology. The explicit goal behind this volume was to facilitate cross-area research and training by familiarizing researchers with paradigms and findings in areas different from but related to their own.

    • The research on cognitive aging and psychopathology makes this a good single-volume reference and training handbook
    • Stress on novel research methods and tutorials on methods makes the book user-friendly for researchers with a wide variety of backgrounds
    • The book is generative in presenting an emerging agenda for future research projects and integrative attempts
