    Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics, Volume 5, contains eight chapters; in Editor Frank Durso's words: "each of these offerings is a seamless piece of scientific cloth in which there is no stitching that binds the basic and the applied. . . . If one imagines a grid with fundamental concepts and methods as the rows and environments as the columns, one can see that some chapters have taken a broad slice down the columns, some have sliced through the row, and some have focused on the intersection of the concept and the environment." Chapters address 
    • performance in nursing
    • human factors of information visualization
    • aviation automation
    • intercepting moving objects
    • expertise, design of training of complex cognitive skills
    • augmented cognition
    • human performance modeling
     "Volume 5 of the Review of Human Factors and Ergonomics provides an excellent overview of some of today’s top research topics, including cockpit automation, human performance modeling, and augmented cognition. It makes an excellent resource for both novices and those who are advanced practitioners in the field." — Mica R. Endsley, SA Technologies, Inc.
    "This is another remarkable volume from this most useful and comprehensive Reviews series. All volumes are gems and must-haves for students, scholars, and those in practice.  This volume is no exception — it covers timely and important topics; chapters are thorough and detailed, addressing our science and our practice and authored by our best scientists and practitioners. Bravo! Another volume that should be in every HF/E bookshelf." — Eduardo Salas, Pegasus Professor & University Trustee Chair, Department of Psychology, Institute for Simulation & Training, University of Central Florida
    About the Series
    Each review in each volume of Reviews of Human Factors and Ergonomics covers a specific topic of timeliness and importance for HF/E researchers and practitioners. Volumes are broader in scope than handbooks and deeper in detail than encyclopedias, and they include both discipline-specific and problem-oriented chapters. As it develops, the Reviews series will constitute an increasingly broad coverage of the entire field, establishing itself as the primary reference for an overview summary and status review of central HF/E topics – one that is important to students, researchers, practitioners, and the informed public.
