Provides a balance between classic research and current topics
The psychology of human memory and cognition is fascinating, dealing with questions and ideas that are inherently interesting; how we think, reason, remember, and use language, to name just a few. Using a first person narrative, Cognition, 6/e poses direct questions to the reader, and balances classic research with cutting edge topics, drawing in the reader and conveying the excitement of the field.
The sixth edition has been updated and expanded upon, with two new chapters – one on cognitive development and the other on cognition and emotion. Reflecting the increasing use of new technologies to study memory and cognition, the authors continue to integrate sections on neurosciences within individual chapter topics.
