Call for papers: Medical Image Perception

New Content ItemCognitive Research: Principles and Implications (CRPI) is pleased to invite you to submit to a new thematic series on medical image perception.

Imagery is ubiquitous in medicine, from screening mammograms to the displays on equipment monitoring patient status. The use of these images raises issues of both practical and basic interest. Sometimes these can be studies with medical professionals as the subject population. In other cases, the fundamental issues are studied using non-expert populations with an eye toward eventual testing with experts. This thematic series welcomes reports of new research that is relevant to the field of medical image perception, broadly defined. For a CRPI-relevant review of some research in this area see:

Wolfe, J. M. (2016). Use-inspired basic research in medical image perception. Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 1(1), 17 (doi: 10.1186/s41235-016-0019-2).

Deadline for submissions:  Papers will be considered for this thematic series unil June 1, 2017.

For any questions, please email the editors for this topic (in fact, if you plan to submit, drop us a line so we will be waiting).
