Written in a clear, concise and accessible style, this book will keep readers engaged and reading on.
Hadlington's book fills a void in the library of academic tones in this field...the breadth of topics included is impressive, and there are dedicated chapters to the much-debated topics of technology addictions and brain training applications (which) also encourage readers to consider all sides of these debates. The author takes complex topics, presents them in a highly engaging and thorough format, and encourages the reader to apply the research data to their own daily interactions with technology.
The language of the book is lucid and impressive, and the sections follow a natural flow. Some of most influential aspects of the book include learning aims at the start of each chapter, Information snippets and questions to consider, detailed tables and figures, and a chapter summary that is informative and elegantly written.
The book covers the effects of being online on such cognitive processes as memory, perception, and attention. and is written for undergraduate and graduate students of cyberpsychology and cognitive psychology.
In Cybercognition, Hadlington explores two questions; in accessing the virtual world of the Internet, are we different cognitively than when we operate in the physical world, and do our interactions with this virtual world change us cognitively.
This book is written in a sharp and well-supported style, providing plenty of evidence-based arguments. The "Learning Aims and Objectives" available at the start of each chapter provide a valuable guide to the reader.
