About this book


This volume looks at the latest research techniques to study the interaction of visual spatial learning and attention guidance with behavioral, psychophysiological, and imaging methods. Part One (behavioral methods) focuses on different paradigms of visual search like visual foraging and contextual cueing, and also methods like feature distribution analysis and search in virtual reality. Part Two (psychophysiological methods) integrates innovative uses of classical potential changes like the CDA and N2pc, with multivariate analysis methods and multi-method designs. Part Three (functional imaging) covers lesion-behavior mapping, retinotopic and grid cell mapping methods for human fMRI, as well as functional registration by hyperalignment and simultaneous eye-tracking and fMRI. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Spatial Learning and Attention Guidance is a valuable resource for all researchers and scientists who are interested in learning more about the relationship between attention and memory.
