The conference from which this book derives took place in Tsukuba, Japan in March 2004. The fifth in a continuing series of conferences, this one was organized to examine dynamic processes in "lower order" cognition from perception to attention to memory, considering both the behavioral and the neural levels. We were fortunate to attract a terrific group of con­ tributors representing five countries, which resulted in an exciting confer­ ence and, as the reader will quickly discover, an excellent set of chapters. In Chapter 1, we will provide a sketchy "road map" to these chapters, elu­ cidating some of the themes that emerged at the conference. The conference itself was wonderful. We very much enjoyed the vari­ ety of viewpoints and issues that we all had the opportunity to grapple with. There were lively and spirited exchanges, and many chances to talk to each other about exciting new research, precisely what a good confer­ ence should promote. We hope that the readers of this book will have the same experience—moving from careful experimental designs in the cogni­ tive laboratory to neural mechanisms measured by new technologies, from the laboratory to the emergency room, from perceptual learning to changes in memory over decades, all the while squarely focusing on how best to explain cognition, not simply to measure it. Ultimately, the goal of science is, of course, explanation. We also hope that the reader will come away absolutely convinced that cognition is a thoroughly dynamic, interactive system.

There are few books that coherently cover research examined by this book from the same or similar perspective The closest relevant books on dynamic cognitive processes focus primarily on nonlinear dynamics and application of chaos theories in cognition, and thus, are very narrowly limited in their scope Provides readers with what is up and coming in cognitive psychology and especially in memory research from leading experts in these areas
