About the Book

The present edition entitled Cyber Psychology incorporates all the important issues of the human mind and behaviour in the context of human-computer interaction in 8 chapters. This edition redesigns all psychological phenomena associated with, or affected by emerging technology. Computers permeate nearly every human activity in the modern world and affect human behaviour from the most basic sensory-motor interactions to the most complex cognitive and social processes. The new edition begins with a brief history of psychology and computers, a comparison of the human nervous system, and the circuitry of a computer. It re-examines a number of theories and models of human-computer interaction as well as research methods and techniques for usability testing. After an introduction to psychology, the edition discusses sensation and perception, learning and memory, thinking and problem solving, language processing, individual differences, motivation and emotion, social relations, and abnormal behaviour as they impact the human-computer interface. Finally, specific issues of artificial intelligence, assistive technologies, video games, and electronic education are presented in this study. The new edition would be valuable asset for the reader to get comprehensive knowledge of psychology in cyberspace. Enlightening feedback and suggestions are solicited.
