During the last three decades there have been enormous advances in our understanding of the neural mechanisms of selective attention at the network as well as the cellular level.
The Oxford Handbook of Attention brings together the different research areas that constitute contemporary attention research into one comprehensive and authoritative volume. In 40 chapters, it covers the most important aspects of attention research from the areas of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, human and animal neuroscience, and computational modelling.
The book is divided into six main sections. Following an introduction from Michael Posner, The Oxford Handbook of Attention begins by looking at theoretical models of attention. The next two sections are dedicated to spatial attention and non-spatial attention respectively. Within section 4, the authors consider the interactions between attention and other psychological
domains. The last two sections focus on attention related disorders and on computational models of attention. A final epilogue chapter written by Nobre and Kastner summarizes the questions, methods, findings, and emerging principles of contemporary attention research.
For both scholars and students, The Oxford Handbook of Attention provides a concise and state-of-the-art review of the current literature in this field.

Anna Christina (Kia) Nobre is Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, where she directs the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity and heads the Brain & Cognition Laboratory. She received her PhD (1992) from Yale University and completed postdoctoral training at Yale and Harvard Medical School before arriving to Oxford as a Junior Research Fellow at New College (1994) and taking up her faculty position in the Department of Experimental
Psychology (1996). Dr Nobre uses a multi-methodological approach to investigate how perception and cognition are modulated according to task goals, expectations, and memories; and to understand how these dynamic regulatory mechanisms are affected by ageing, psychiatric conditions, and neurodegenerative
disorders. She has published more than 100 articles in journals and books.
Sabine Kastner is Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology at Princeton University, where she directs Princeton's neuroimaging facility and heads the Neuroscience of Attention and Perception Laboratory in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and Department of Psychology. She earned an M.D. (1993) and PhD (1994) degree and received postdoctoral training at the Max- Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and NIMH before joining the faculty at Princeton University in 2000. Dr Kastner studies
the neural basis of visual perception, attention, and awareness in healthy humans, patients with brain lesions and animal models and has published more than 100 articles in journals and books. Dr Kastner's contributions to the field of cognitive neuroscience were recognized with the Young Investigator
Award from the Cognitive Neuroscience Society in 2005.
