Summary

This undergraduate level textbook covers all of the core topics and materials for undergraduate courses in cognitive psychology. Written in an engaging and easy to read way, it will increase students' understanding of critical concepts and principles.The authors highlight the relevance of cognitive psychology to everyday life through discussion of studies that extend basic research findings into real-world situations, and through re-occurring applied scenarios at the end of each chapter.Building from an historical context, the book discusses the background behind current ideas within the field of cognitive psychology and conveys the dynamic nature of the field, focusing on the current state of the discipline, including current controversies and investigating fundamental questions.The authors introduce and illustrate the methods of research used within cognitive psychology, as well as those from neuroscience and computational modeling that now influence studies of cognition through the field of cognitive neuroscience.Classic studies are used to explain fundamental ideas, but each chapter will also feature current research and evidence in neuropsychology and neuroscience. These will be presented as a way to converge on an ideal account of the processes operating, rather than as explanations in their own right.This will be a constant reference source on the most important findings and ideas within Cognitive Psychology for students to dip into for information.Features include:- A common chapter structure across the book, including re-occurring applied scenarios- An introductory overview for each chapter laying out the main questions and issues- Illustrations, figures, and photographs- Key concepts highlighted in the text and explained in a glossary- Detailed presentation of critical empirical studies- Focus boxes on significant individuals in the field of cognitive psychology- Suggested further readings at the end of each chapter- Review questions at the end of each section to enhance long-term memory for information, and stimulate thinking
