Aufmerksamkeit und Handlungssteuerung

Author: Hermann J. Müller
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642418259
Release Date: 2014-11-24
Genre: Psychology

Selektive Aufmerksamkeit ist die Fähigkeit, relevante Informationen auszuwählen und nicht relevante oder störende zu ignorieren. Diese selektive Aufmerksamkeit spielt sowohl bei der Interaktionen mit anderen Menschen, der Bewegung in der Umwelt, der Nutzung von technischen Geräten, der Planung von zielgerichteten Handlungen wie auch bei der Kontrolle von Denkprozessen eine zentrale Rolle in der menschlichen Kognition. Ein wesentliches Merkmal dieses Buches liegt darin, dass verschiedene Phänomene der selektiven Aufmerksamkeit dargestellt werden und dass das in den einzelnen Kapiteln entwickelte Wissen auf Alltagssituationen im täglichen Leben bezogen werden kann. Auch kann es zur Lösung von Problemstellungen in diversen spezifischen Bereichen, z.B. im Bereich der Ergonomie angewandt werden. Zielgruppen für dieses Werk sind Studierende und praktisch Tätige in den Kognitionswissenschaften, Neurowissenschaften, Medizin, Mensch-Maschine-Schnittstelle, Software-Ergonomie, Sportwissenschaften, Ingenieurwissenschaften. Zum Inhalt: Basierend auf experimentellen Methoden werden die aus der aktuellen Forschung resultierenden Erklärungsansätze vorgestellt und diskutiert. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt dabei auf der Integration von kognitionspsychologischen Befunden und Modellen mit neurokognitiven Ansätzen. Dieser integrative Ansatz dient dazu, neurokortikale Korrelate von Aufmerksamkeitsphänomenen im Sinne der Aktivität spezifischer Gehirnmodule bzw. kortikaler Netzwerke zu beschreiben. Für das Verständnis des Buches unentbehrliche methodische Ansätze und theoretische Grundlagen werden im Haupttext gesondert in Textboxen herausgestellt. Für eilige Leser und für einen raschen und kurzen Überblick sind die wichtigsten Kernaussagen jeweils am Kapitelende zusammengefasst
