"Cognitive Psychology: Applying the Science of the Mind" combines clear yet rigorous descriptions of key empirical findings and theoretical principles with real-world examples, strong learning pedagogy, and a straightforward organization. Engagingly written, the text weaves five empirical threads -Neuroscience, Consciousness, Development, Individual Differences, and Culture - throughout the text to help students integrate the material. New to the Second Edition: The book has been thoroughly updated, with much more discussion of and reference to studies that have been conducted in the past five years. In line with the continuing explosion of cognitive neuroscience in recent years, the authors have included more studies relating cognition to brain function. In addition, they have more closely tied discussion to the research themes of consciousness, culture, individual differences, and development. Many chapters have been reworked considerably, most notably those on perceptual processing, attention and working memory, and language.Robinson-Riegler, Bridget is the author of 'Cognitive Psychology Applying the Science of the Mind', published 2007 under ISBN 9780205531394 and ISBN 0205531393.
