Description

Life scientists have long been familiar with the notion of interference and inhibition in biological systems 3/4 most notably in the neuron. Now these concepts have been applied to cognitive psychology to explain processes in attention, learning, memory, comprehension, and reasoning. Presenting an overview of research findings in this realm, Interference and Inhibition in Cognition discusses what processes are sensitive to interference, individual differences in interference sensitivity, and how age and experience factor into one's ability to inhibit interference. Key Features * Provides empirical and theoretical perspectives * Discusses how inhibition and interference change with age and experience * Illustrates the ways in which interference affects language processing, attention, perception, learning, and memory
