This book brings cognition to life by demonstrating the endless application of cognitive psychology to everyday life. While introducing the current research in this rapidly changing field, the text also introduces critical thinking exercises that highlight important phenomena and provide an engaging firsthand view of the everyday relevance of research in cognition. The book has three main threads that serve as unifying themes for current research in the field: Cognition and Neuroscience; Cognition and Consciousness; and Cognition and Individual Differences. A ";story"; introduces the book and is continually referred to throughout in installments, highlighting the application of the information and providing a useful organizing tool.

From the Back Cover:

Cognitive Psychology: Applying the Science of the Mind combines clear yet rigorous descriptions of key empirical findings and theoretical principles with real-world examples, strong learning pedagogy, and a straightforward organization.  Engagingly written, the text weaves five empirical threads –Neuroscience, Consciousness, Development, Individual Differences, and Culture – throughout the text to help students integrate the material.  

 

New to the Second Edition:

  • The book has been thoroughly updated, with much more discussion of and reference to studies that have been conducted in the past five years.
  • In line with the continuing explosion of cognitive neuroscience in recent years, the authors have included more studies relating cognition to brain function.
  • In addition, they have more closely tied discussion to the research themes of consciousness, culture, individual differences, and development.
  • Many chapters have been reworked considerably, most notably those on perceptual processing, attention and working memory, and language.
