Enhancing Human Performance
About the Book
This collection of chapters reflects the disparate contexts in which human performance is examined, and the many factors that impinge on performance in a negative way, and the conditions under which performance can be improved. The book explores topics such as: the effects of a computer maths game on the acquisition of arithmetic skills in school children; the effects of exercise on cognition in children with autism spectrum disorder; the influence of bilingualism on visuospatial memory; the potential beneficial effects of beliefs in the extraordinary (e.g., paranormal phenomena); an examination of how attention to food-related images is affected as a function of food deprivation; the factors that affect the perceived effort of credit repayment; the impact of the emotional valence of faces on the spatial direction of attention; emotional eating in Thailand; the relationship between work roles, worker characteristics and work performance; the relationship between national culture and national innovation; and organisational preparation for Generation Y leaders.
