9781292021409: Cognitive Psychology: Applying the Science of the Mind

Cognitive Psychology: Applying the Science of the Mind combines clear yet rigorous descriptions of key empirical findings and theoretical principles with frequent real-world examples, strong learning pedagogy, and a straightforward organization. For undergraduate courses in cognitive psychology. Engagingly written, the text weaves five empirical threads - embodied cognition, metacognition, culture, evolution, and emotion -- - throughout the text to help students integrate the material. The text's organization offers an intuitive description of cognition that enhances student understanding by organizing chapters around the flow of a piece of information that enters the cognitive system.
