COGNITIVE INTERFACES: Constraints on Linking Cognitive Information
Emile van de Zee, University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, and
Edited by Urpo Nikanne, University of Oslo

This book brings new perspectives to bear on the architecture of the
mind and the relationship between language and cognition. It
considers how information is linked in the mind between different
cognitive and expressive levels - so that people can, for example,
talk about what they see and act upon what they hear - and how these
linkages are and need to be constrained. The book is concerned in
particular with the perception and representation of spatial
structure. The authors, all psychologists and linguists, show that
insights can be gained from the joint deployment of theoretical
linguistic and experimental psychological research and the value of a
multi-disciplinary approach to the study of mind, brain, and language.
