New Issues in Experimental and Applied Psychology - A Festschrift for Alf Zimmer

The volume "New Issues in Experimental and Applied Psychology: A Festschrift for Alf Zimmer" presents an up-to-date summary of research findings in experimental psychology and applied research topics. Leading researchers in the area of cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, educational and applied psychology present their findings in the context of on-going research programs. The unifying theme builds on the pioneering work of Alf Zimmer, Professor emeritus for General and Applied Psychology of the University of Regensburg, whose work provided the basis for many of the experimental approaches used in this field. The book covers topics related to the neural foundations of conscious and unconscious control of behavior, episodic memory and forgetting, mental models of situation awareness and driving, neurocognitive approaches to workload research, elderly drivers and their need for in-vehicle assistance, the evaluation of tools for web-based learning, neuroscientific approaches to graphomotor research, as well as to the neural adaptations that occur during learning. This Festschrift provides an excellent introduction to current research in these different areas with a strong focus on the contributions from the University of Regensburg and cooperating institutions.
