Written by acclaimed researcher and teacher Steven Yantis, Sensation and Perception shows students how scientists investigate and understand sensory and perceptual phenomena today. Like no other textbook for the course, it integrates classic and current research—including the latest developments in cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging—into a highly accessible portrait of the field’s defining principles and experiments. Engagingly written, filled with outstanding art (including 3-D images), and supported by dozens of interactive visual demonstrations devised by the author, it is your students’ gateway to the forefront of research in sensation and perception.
