This book presents an intuitive understanding of how humans process information in the performance of tasks—highlighting the strengths and limitations, as well as methods, of performance. Equal emphasis is placed on the implications of these strengths and limitations for the design of equipment with which people interact, and for the design and training of work procedures.

Chapter topics include spatial displays, language and communications, memory and training, decision making, selection of action, manual control, and stress and human error.

Individuals interested in psychology will appreciate this book's reflection on the link between basic research and real-world applications.
