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.

Bruce Goldstein's COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY connects the study of cognition to your everyday life. This accessible book introduces you to landmark studies as well as the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. To help you further experiment with and understand the concepts in the text, you can use COGLAB 2.0: THE ONLINE COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY LABORATORY. Available at www.iChapters.com, COGLAB contains dozens of classic experiments designed to help you learn about cognitive concepts and how the mind works.

Great book! July 27, 2011

I had to use this textbook for my Cognitive Psychology class. It was actually easy to read since the writer explains concepts easily with pictures and examples and it's all stuff that's applicable in everyday life that we aren't even aware of doing. Highly recommend.
