This innovative 13-chapter text examines psychological issues from the levels of the brain, person, and social world in order to help students actively apply psychology to their lives. Through their own research, clinical work, and experiences as teachers, Stephen Kosslyn and Robin Rosenberg have found that exploring psychology from multiple perspectives further enhances learning. Examining psychological concepts from the levels of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings) and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) and their interactions helps students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters and actively apply psychology to their lives

Discover where learning comes to life...
MyPsychLab is an exciting new learning and teaching tool designed to increase student success in the classroom, and quickly and easily give instructors access to every imaginable resource needed to teach and administer an introductory psychology course—all housed in one rich site.
MyPsychLab will help students learn, and will save instructors time! And, it's easy to use...
Learning in Context For Students!
MyPsychLab is built on the strength of learning in context. Students actually use the e-book—in exactly the same layout as the printed version—to launch multimedia resources such as animations, video clips, audio explanations, and activities, and profiles of prominent psychologists.
Bring Learning to Life with Simulations!
Visual learning enhances test scores; students will test better after not only reading about psychological material, but actually seeing the concept come to life with the help of multimedia. At the center of MyPsychLab are highly interactive simulations that let students experience psychological phenomena for themselves, which include visual illusions, cognitive maps, memory retrieval, concept formation using prototypes, and more.
Know what to you need to study!
MyPsychLab provides students with multiple structured testing and quizzing opportunities within each chapter to reinforce concepts presented. Results from these assessments then generate an Individualized Study Plan, which allows students to pinpoint exactly where additional study and review is needed.
Additional help always available!
Do students still need additional assistance studying and completing assignments? MyPsychLab also offers students access to The Tutor Center, a free, one on one tutoring service during afternoon and evening hours, and Research Navigator, Pearson Education's online database of academic journals.
And, MyPsychLab is easy to use!
MyPsychLab is a turn-key solution; instructors can spend as much or as little time as they'd like customizing their course; our content is pre-loaded and ready to use. All instructor resources are aggregated in one easy to navigate place, available 24/7. With the click of a mouse, professors have access to the test item file, class grade book, PowerPoint lectures, lecture outlines, and more!
