From the Back Cover:

The scientific study of human memory and cognition deals with compelling questions and ideas, such as how we think, reason, remember, learn, and use language. Cognition Canadian edition captures some of the excitement of the field for students and strives to strike a balance between basic, core material, important new developments, and cutting-edge topics.


Reflecting the increasing use of new technologies, the authors integrate sections on neuroscience within individual chapter topics. A major section in the introductory chapters provides background information on neurons and the brain, so even students without formal coursework on the biological basis of cognition will be prepared for the cognitive neuroscience coverage.


This Canadian edition recognizes the contributions to cognitive psychology made by Canadian scientists, who have been in the forefront of psychological science for over half a century. Many such research studies are cited, while some are featured at greater length in the Research in Action boxes found in most chapters.
