Description

Forming connections between human performance and design

Engineering Psychology and Human Performance, 4e examines human-machine interaction. The book is organized directly from the psychological perspective of human information processing. The chapters generally correspond to the flow of information as it is processed by a human being--from the senses, through the brain, to action--rather than from the perspective of system components or engineering design concepts.

This book is ideal for a psychology student, engineering student, or actual practitioner in engineering psychology, human performance, and human factors
