What people are saying - Write a review
Excellent book, particularily for those who are interested in multimodal issues. An impressive collection of chapters written by people who are active researchers/experts in experimental psychology. The collection doesn't attempt to cover the full range of experimental topics, but instead leans toward sensory perception, memory, or both (i.e., Ch. 1: Sheffert; Ch. 8: Soto-Faraco ). Most chapters do a fine job reviewing the current literature as pertains to the author(s) specific area of research, and not the general topic of the volume (i.e., Ch. 7: Cinell is a good example). Compared to other edited books, this one has the least amount of redundant content across chapters, and a greater variety of perspectives and sources.
