Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 7

Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 7
Editor:Patricia R. DeLucia Texas Tech University
Year Published:2011

Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 7 is available online!

The contents of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 7, is simultaneously international, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and evidence-based. The authors draw on knowledge about processes that occur within people (vision, audition, haptics, cognitive, physical, emotional), across people (social, cultural), and between people and organizations. The book exemplifies the human factors/ergonomics field as, in the editor's words, “a critical component of the solutions to past, present, and future sociotechnical problems.” The chapters in this volume address distracted driving; auditory displays for in-vehicle technologies; human-robot interaction; job analysis techniques for distal upper-extremity disorders; understanding, evaluating, and designing for human emotion; perceptual, cognitive, and physical factors of night vision goggles; information environment, fatigue, and culture in the maritime domain; and virtual reality system design for mobility and haptic task performance.

About the Editor
Patricia R. DeLucia is a professor of psychology and coordinator of the Human Factors Psychology Program in the Psychology Department at Texas Tech University. She is also an adjunct professor in the School of Nursing at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. DeLucia completed her PhD at Columbia University, followed by a National Research Council Postdoctoral Research Associateship at Armstrong Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), as well as an associate editor of Human Factors and a member of the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied editorial board. DeLucia serves as president of APA's Division 21: Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology, as chair of the HFES Accreditation Committee, and as a member of the Standing Review Panel for the NASA Johnson Space Center Human Research Program, Space Human Factors and Habitability Element. She served on the Transportation Research Board's Committee for the Safety Belt Technology Study and was chair of the HFES Education and Training Committee and the Society's Perception and Performance Technical Group. DeLucia's research interests include theoretical issues in the visual perception of collision, motion, and depth and in human factors applications in transportation (driving and aviation) and health care (minimally invasive surgery, medication administration in nursing, patient safety).
