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 will help students understand the theories of cognition -- driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students' daily lives. Students will leave this text with a true understanding of the "behind the scenes" activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceiving, remembering, or thinking. Goldstein's coverage also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter.E. Bruce Goldstein is the author of 'Cognitive Psychology: Connecting Mind, Research and Everyday Experience', published 2004 under ISBN 9780534577322 and ISBN 0534577326.
