Summary Studies of attention, memory, and executive function continue to provide a greater understanding of the human learning process and the nature of specific cognitive disabilities. But progress has been impeded by the absence of consensual, cross-disciplinary theories, definitions, and methodologies. This authoritative text presents research on the components of these central cognitive processes and explains how these findings can help clinicians assess and remediate reading and attention disorders. Gathering the work of prominent researchers in psychology, neuropsychology, special education, and medicine, the chapters consider each of these processes from different theoretical perspectives
