Do we really only use 10% of our brains? Can we learn in our sleep? Does money make us happier?

Increased coverage of research methods, including new 'Stats Fact' boxes addressing often contested issues in statistics
A number of additional sections including those on executive functions, epigenetics, childhood reminiscing, self-esteem and inflated praise, and gender bias in motor development.

Review:

'A joy to read - the writing style, the examples, and the issues are all spot on. Perfect for a first year course in psychology.' -Zoltan Dienes, University of Sussex, UK 'I must say, I like this book a lot. It is clear and concise, and presents classic material alongside cutting edge developments in the field. The structure is very good and it is funny too!' -Ase Innes-Ker, University of Lund, Sweden 'A fantastic combination of real-world examples, accessible writing and academically credible presentation. The authors have done a great job - the writing drew me into topics and I read up on current developments with interest. This textbook has been very well adapted for a UK and European audience.' -Rachel Taylor, University of Glamorgan, UK 'The mindbugs approach appeals to me very much because it sets the ecological relevance of a particular theoretical issue. This is a well-written, humorous and accessible textbook.' -Derek Smith, University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, UK 'The clarity, level of language and quality of the explanations would fit my student audience perfectly. It is an accessible and engaging textbook with a great style and nice touches of humour. The historical context really appeals to me and fits my style of teaching.' -Pascal Wilhelm, University of Twente, Netherlands "I love the companion website, and I'm using a lot of the materials for seminar activities or as suggestions for self-managed learning" - Janice Brown, London South Bank University, UK
