Kruschke, J. K. (1997). Selective attention in associative learning. (Review of the book by D. R. Shanks, The Psychology of Associative Learning.) Journal of Mathematical Psychology, 41, 207-211.

ABSTRACT: "This review makes two main points. First, I describe the book's remarkable coherence and clarity. This aspect of the book is a gift to anyone interested in this subject matter. Second, whereas the book is uncommitted to the form that future theories will take, I argue that future models must address the phenomenon of rapidly shifting, learned selective attention."
