Abstract:

Ambiguity and adaptive responses to it provide some broad themes that serve to organize this book. [The authors] hope to provide the framework to allow students to better appreciate not just a series of interesting phenomena in different areas of research but some basic commonalities that cut across these areas. A second, closely related goal is to encourage the student to gain an appreciation for methods by which researchers study the mind. [This book] examines a wide variety of activities and tries to provide an understanding that captures many of them. A third goal of the book is to convey challenges and open questions associated with the field of cognition.-Pref.
