(from the chapter) The pace of attention research has accelerated since the previous edition of this volume was published in 2004. Among the major trends are (1) further integration of research in which behavioral, imaging, cellular, and genetic methods are combined; (2) important breakthroughs in imaging the developing brain; (3) new applications of attentional theory to illuminate psychopathology; (4) proposed interventions to improve poor attention and normal aging. I have continued to group the chapters under the general headings of Cognitive Science, Imaging, Neuroscience, Development, and Deficits and Interventions, but it becomes increasingly difficult to keep them in place as methods are combined and developmental or evolutionary perspectives are applied to adult studies. For each of these topics I have tried to indicate places where advances have occurred and the new research opportunities they offer. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved).
