Additional Resource Materials Human behavior would not be
interesting to us if it remained the same from one moment to the
next. Moreover, we tend to be sensitive to changes in people's
behavior, especially when such change impacts on our own, and
other's, behavior. This book describes a variety of techniques for
investigating change in behavior. It employs conventional time
series methods, as well as recently developed methodology using
nonlinear dynamics, including chaos, a term that is not easy to
define, nor to confirm. Although nonlinear methods are being used
more frequently in psychology, a comprehensive coverage of methods,
theory and applications, with a particular focus on human behavior,
is needed. Between these covers, the reader is led through various
procedures for linear and nonlinear time series analysis, including
some novel procedures that allow subtle temporal aspects of human
cognition to be detected. Analyses of reaction times, heart-rate,
psychomotor skill, decision making, and EEG are supplemented by a
contemporary review of recent dynamical research in developmental
psychology, psychopathology, and human cognitive processes. A
consideration of nonlinear dynamics assists our understanding of
deep issues such as: Why is our short-term memory capacity limited?
Why do chronic disorders, and also cognitive development, progress
through stage-like transitions? Why do people make irrational
decisions? This book will be of particular interest to researchers,
practitioners, and advanced students in a variety of areas in
psychology, particularly in human experimental and physiological
psychology. Data analyses are performed using the latest nonlinear
dynamics computer packages. A comprehensive WWW resource of
software and supplementary information is provided to assist the
reader's understanding of the novel, and potentially revolutionary,
procedures described in the book.
