9780195447491: Cognition, fifth edition


Cognition, 5e, is a comprehensive introduction to the field of cognitive psychology. Cognition examines the mental processes behind how we come to know about the world in which we live. Covering a wide range of topics such as perception, memory, attention, and language, and the common cognitive disorders associated with each, Cognition applies real-life examples to the key theories in order to create an accessible yet comprehensive primer to the field.

This new edition features relevant case studies to open and close each chapter and a full ancillary suite, including an online Discovery Lab to test or demonstrate the text's key theories.
