Contents

Nervous flyers may find plenty to both comfort and concern them in this month's cover feature. On p.90 Don Harris discusses the role of human factors in aviation psychology. Modern flight operations have outpaced science and regulations, Harris argues. Ever-changing technical environments require an increasing appreciation of the human component, drawing in a range of fields to keep air travel out of the headlines.

Stockholm - a thankfully uneventful flight away - was the venue for last year's European Congress and my interview with Marinus van IJzendoorn (p.96). Some scientists take your breath away with the humanity behind their number crunching, and Marinus' compassion was striking. A scientific tendency to neglect the environment leads children to suffer, he says. Genes and brain structures don't raise a child: it takes a village.

Elsewhere, there is the usual mix of news, views and reviews, including the latest entries in our popular 'Looking back', 'New voices' and 'Big picture' series.
Dr Jon Sutton
Managing Editor
