For psychologists and cognitive neuroscientists interested in 'attention', the debate over the temporal limits of our attentional mechanisms is one of great importance and topicality. InThe limits of attention,Kimron Shapiro has brought together a high quality team of attention researchers to discuss the issues key to this area of attention research. The result is an important book for cognitive psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists, and philosophers.
