Description:

Is it possible to learn something new without being aware of it? How do our memories work? How do we decide what choices to make? 㬬 Fundamentals of Cognition, 2ndeditionis a basic, reader-friendly introduction to the key cognitive processes that allow us to make sense of the world around us. Whether we are aware of their workings or not, our abilities in attention, perception, learning, memory, language, problem solving, thinking and reasoning are all necessary in enabling us to cope with everyday life. Understanding these processes through the study of cognitive psychology is therefore essential for understanding human behaviour. 㬬 This new edition has been extensively updated and revised, with particular emphasis on making it even more accessible for introductory students. Several new textbook features, including '¬ÜIn the Real World'¬" text boxes, case studies and research activities, help students to fully engage with the material. The book includes comprehensive coverage of all the key topics in cognition and offers a perfect balance between the classic experiments and cutting-edge research and theoretical developments. Traditional approaches in cognition are combined with cutting-edge cognitive neuroscience and a focus on cognitive neuropsychology to create a thorough, up-to-date evaluation of the field. 㬬 Written with introductory-level students in mind, it can be read easily by those with no previous knowledge of cognitive psychology. However, it also includes directions for more detailed and advanced study. This excellent overview will be essential reading for all students in cognitive psychology and related areas such as clinical psychology. 㬬 This edition is accompanied by a rich array of online multimedia materials, which will be made available to qualifying adopters and their students completely free of charge.
