Description:

The authors introduce students to the fundamentals of psychology and the latest cutting-edge research through a pedagogical framework designed to keep students engaged, motivated, and learning actively. As in the third edition, the “science of learning” facilitates long-term retention and understanding. The fourth edition introduces “Psychology: Knowledge You Can Use” boxes. Each of these new features shows students the immediate utility of a main concept discussed in the particular chapter. By applying the science of learning and making connections to students’ everyday lives, Psychological Science, Fourth Edition, addresses how, where, and why students learn.

Michael S. Gazzaniga, one of the premiere doctors of neuroscience, was born on December 12, 1939 in Los Angeles. Educated at Dartmouth College and California Institute of Technology, he has been on the faculty of the Center for Neuroscience, University of California, Davis. His early research examined the subject of epileptics who had undergone surgery to control seizures. He has also studied Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients and reveals important findings in books such as Cognitive Neuroscience: The Biology of the Mind. While many of his writings are technical, he also educates and stimulates readers with discussions about the fascinating and mysterious workings of the brain. Books such as The Social Brain and The Mind's Past bring forth new information and theories regarding how the brain functions, interacts, and responds with the body and the environment.
