That is a big question. The psychological part of HCI is more or less
built on old psychophysics (how does perception and action scale as a
function of the inputs? - typical questions are error rates as function
of font size) and cognitive models of decisionmaking. Typical HCI
textbooks do contain a lot of cognitive science models of how users
function, trying to use them to predict what will work.
