Summary

Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, Bruce Goldstein's COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. The text employs a wealth of concrete examples and illustrations that help students understand the theories of cognition--driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students' daily lives. Students gain a true understanding of the "behind the scenes" activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein's coverage also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter.
