Introduction to Human Factors: Applying Psychology to Design

Nancy J. Stone, Alex Chaparro, Joseph R. Keebler, Barbara S. Chaparro, Daniel S. McConnell
September 01, 2017

This is a comprehensive, but accessible text that introduces students to the fields of human factors and ergonomics. The book is intended for undergraduate students, written from the psychological science perspective along with various pedagogical components that will enhance student comprehension...

Driving With Music: Cognitive-Behavioural Implications

Warren Brodsky
July 27, 2017

This book, the first full-length text on the subject, explores the everyday use of music listening while driving a car. It presents the relationship between cars and music in an effort to understand how music behaviour in the car can either enhance driver safety or place the driver at increased...

Safe Design and Construction of Machinery: Regulation, Practice and Performance

Elizabeth Bluff
July 27, 2017

The origin of this book is the compelling evidence that a high proportion of machinery-related deaths and injuries are attributable to genuine and serious risks originating within machine design and construction. This trend continues despite significant legal obligations, notably the European...

Cognition, Assessment and Debriefing in Aviation

Wolff-Michael Roth
July 06, 2017

Debriefing is a major component of the job in many high-risk industries where errors can have considerable, often deadly consequences, including combat, surgery, and aviation. Although there exists considerable literature on debriefing, recent reviews of the literature suggest (a) shortcomings in...

Human Factors Methods and Sports Science: A Practical Guide

Paul Salmon, Neville Anthony Stanton, Adam Gibbon, Daniel Jenkins, Guy H. Walker
June 16, 2017

During the course of any sporting event, critical cognitive and physical tasks are performed within a dynamic, complex, collaborative system comprising multiple humans and artifacts, under pressurized, complex, and rapidly changing conditions. Highly skilled, well-trained individuals walk a fine...

Human Reliability Assessment Theory and Practice

Anthony J. Spurgin
June 14, 2017

A continually evolving discipline, human reliability assessment (HRA) has elements of controversy from the definition of terms to the application of appropriate methods for the representation of human failure probability. The idea that human error is a random event is falling out of favor and the...

Cognitive Work Analysis: Applications, Extensions and Future Directions

Neville A. Stanton, Paul M. Salmon, Guy H. Walker, Daniel P. Jenkins
June 12, 2017

Over the past decade, Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) has been one of the popular human factors approaches for complex systems evaluation and design applications. This is reflected by a diverse range of applications across safety critical domains. The book brings together a series of CWA...

Advances in Cognitive Ergonomics

Gavriel Salvendy, Waldemar Karwowski
June 07, 2017

The chapters in the book come from an international group of authors with diverse backgrounds including ergonomics, psychology, architecture, computer science, engineering, and sociology. Specific topics include biometric systems development, military command and control, cellular phone interface...

Cognitive Systems Engineering: An Integrative Living Laboratory Framework

Michael D. McNeese, Peter Kent Forster
June 07, 2017

This book provides a framework for integrating complex systems that are problem-centric, human-centered, and provides an interdisciplinary, multi-methodological purview of multiple perspectives surrounding the human factors/human actors within living ecosystems. This book will provide useful...

Advances in Understanding Human Performance: Neuroergonomics, Human Factors Design, and Special Populations

Tadeusz Marek, Waldemar Karwowski, Valerie Rice
May 31, 2017

Combining emerging concepts, theories, and applications of human factors knowledge, this volume focuses on discovery and understanding of human performance issues in complex systems, including recent advances in neural basis of human behavior at work (i.e. neuroergonomics), training, and universal...

Decision Modes in Complex Task Environments

Norbert Steigenberger, Thomas Lübcke, Heather Fiala, Alina Riebschläger
May 30, 2017

Despite intense research on decision-making in action, we still know little about when decision-makers rely on deliberate vs. intuitive decision-making in decision situations under complexity and uncertainty. Building on default-interventionist dual-processing theory, this book studies...

Diagnosis: Interpreting the Shadows

Pat Croskerry, Karen Cosby, Mark L. Graber, Hardeep Singh
May 24, 2017

Despite diagnosis being the key feature of a physician's clinical performance, this is the first book that deals specifically with the topic. In recent years, however, considerable interest has been shown in this area and significant developments have occurred in two main areas: a) an awareness and...
