1 Review

The contributions to this volume, the sixteenth in the prestigious Attentionand Performance series, revisit the issue of modularity, the idea that many functions areindependently realized in specialized, autonomous modules.

Although there is muchevidence of modularity in the brain, there is also reason to believe that the outcome of processing,across domains, depends on the synthesis of a wide range of constraining influences. The twenty-fourchapters in Attention and Performance XVI look at how these influences areintegrated in perception, attention, language comprehension, and motor control. They consider themechanisms of information integration in the brain; examine the status of the modularity hypothesisin light of efforts to understand how information integration can be successfully achieved; anddiscuss information integration from the viewpoints of psychophysics, physiology, and computationaltheory.
