One problem confronting instructors in cognitive psychology courses is covering such diverse topics as pattern recognition, attention, memory, language, decision-making, and problem solving. It is virtually impossible to both cover these topics and also provide details regarding the beauty of the experimental studies that have tackled important topics in a single textbook or in a semester of lectures. The goal of this book is to help fill this void and provide students with the opportunity to learn about the details of the actual articles and chapters that have had major influences in the development of this discipline.

Review:

A guided tour through some of cognitive psychology's most influential ideas and accomplishments, as presented in the original primary sources. The mix of classic and contemporary readings should stimulate many a discussion of where our field came from and where it is going..
–Martha Farah, University of Pennsylvania

This excellent set of readings will be of major assistance to students trying to develop a good understanding of cognitive psychology. David Balota and Elizabeth Marsh are to be congratulated on the skill with which they have identified the key papers in all of the main areas within cognitive psychology..
–Michael W. Eysenck, University of London
