This volume, and the accompanying Volume 2, is based on the keynote and state-of-the-art lectures from the 27th International Congress of Psychology. They feature a collection of chapters written by international leaders in psychological scholarship. The chapters reflect the diversity of current research topics in psychology, where old boundaries have become obsolete and subdivisions from the past merge to form new objects of study.
This volume addresses cognitive, biological, and health perspectives. It includes sections on the neural mechanisms underlying psychological processes; the core areas in experimental psychology, perception, attention, learning and memory; the interaction between cognitive and emotional processes; and higher cognitive processes with special focus on decision making and language. Volume 2 goes on to discuss social, developmental and clinical perspectives.
Psychology at the Turn of the Millennium with its broad coverage of psychological theory and research, and its highly select group of leading authors will be invaluable reading for researchers in the field.
