Whilst attention is a term commonly used in everyday life, for many years psychologists have struggled in their attempts to explain what it actually means. Attention and Pattern Recognition introduces the main psychological research on attention and the methods that have been used to study it. It also examines the subdivisions of focused and divided attention and explores how people recognise patterns and faces. The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor made to the new modular style of teaching. Each short book covers a topic in more detail than any large textbook can, allowing teacher and student to select material exactly to suit any particular course or project. The books have been written especially for those students new to higher level study, whether at school home, college or university. They include specially designed features to help with technique, such as model essay at an average level with an examiners comments to show how extra marks can be gained. The authors are all examiners and teachers at introductory level.

'It is clearly written and provides helpful advice and material to foster the improvement of grades. Although aimed at A and AS level students, this book would provide an appropriate introduction for first year undergraduate students who have not studied psychology before' - Liz Styles, Buckingham Chilterns University College
`This book is clearly and accessibly written...It goes beyond what is available in most of the general textbooks currently available to A level students and will allow a keen student to develop knowledge and understanding of the topic that should lead to higher grades in the exam...' - Jane Willson, Norwich City College
