Examining a broad range of issues, this book reviews basic research on S-R compatibility in particular and the relation between perception and action more generally. The authors provide a thorough comparison of alternative views and guidelines that incorporate current knowledge of compatibility effects. They cover the effects of different S-R mappings in simple and complex tasks, factors that influence response-selection efficiency, correspondence effects of irrelevant stimulus information, compatibility effects for multiple and orthogonal dimensions, consequences of mixing mappings and tasks, practice and transfer effects, compatibility effects in multiple-task performance, and more.
