(p. ix) Alexander Pollatsek is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His work in psychology has covered a broad range of topics, including object and scene perception and people’s understanding of probability, statistics, and decision-making. “Dr. Pollatsek’s primary interests, however, are in word processing, reading, and investigating how eye movements can be used to understand the reading process.”

Rebecca Treiman is the Burke and Elizabeth High Baker Professor of Child Development Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. Treiman’s work focuses on the cognitive and linguistic processes involved in reading and spelling, particularly how children learn these skills. She has studied a variety of topics, including children’s invented spellings, the characteristics of English and other writing systems, and the special difficulties faced by children with dyslexia and those who are deaf.
