The Anatomy of Bias

Jan Lauwereyns

The MIT Press

This book provides a detailed analysis of the processes and techniques involved in the development of attention or bias toward certain objects or goals. It provides detailed investigations along with extensive findings and evidence to generate more data and information about biases and related cognitive processes. The book focuses on providing these findings to make it easy for students, researchers, and common people to understand the concept of bias and its role in determining human behavior. Different aspects of attention or bias are discussed with detailed examples and extensive evidence. These examples and evidence also reveal that bias toward certain objects or tasks involves significant cognitive and neural processes.

Keywords:   bias, neural processes, cognitive processes
