???Kellogg lucidly presents the basics of what historical and contemporary psychological science has taught us about the workings of the human mind. Students will enjoy learning from this book.??????Elizabeth Loftus, University of California, Irvine "Fundamentals of Cognitive Psychology combines a thorough review of classic data with highly relevant contemporary every-day examples. The text draws a wide arc that encompasses most aspects of cognitive psychology???ranging from visual consciousness to knowledge representation, language, and problem solving. Kellogg illustrates the material with many relevant and insightful examples of cognitive disorders, which are certain to pique students??? interest." ???Stephan Lewandowsky, University of Western Australia This clear and concise text offers undergraduate students a brief but solid introduction to the fundamental concepts of cognitive psychology. Integrating the latest developments in cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, emotion, and cognitive development throughout the text, author Ronald T. Kellogg provides a view of what is happening at the leading edge of the field today. Key FeaturesFocuses on the ???essentials??? of cognitive psychology: Does not bog students down in tangential or esoteric asides or in topics more suitable for discussion in advanced follow-up courses.Integrates coverage of neuroscience: A four-color insert of cognitive tasks that students can replicate and related brain images (PET and fMRI) helps students develop a deeper understanding of the neuroscience behind cognitive processes.Emphasizes practical applications: Concrete implications of cognitive research are woven into the narrative of thetext rather than boxed in inserts that students would be tempted to ignore as unnecessary detail.Highlights important concepts: Margin notes summarize important concepts, providing further clarification when needed and giving students previewing and reviewing guideposts.
