Instead of focusing on empirical data, COGNITION focuses on the theories that underlie cognitive phenomena. The text features lucid authorship, accurate coverage, a minimum of jargon, a balance of classic and contemporary research, and a variety of concrete examples from real life and experiments. At the same time, a logical organization and thoughtful transitions help students see the interrelated nature of the topics and themes that comprise this evolving field. Where helpful, cognitive neuroscience coverage is included in discussion of debates about normal processes, interruptions of cognitive function, and other areas. Each chapter concludes with critical thinking questions and a reference to COGLAB (an interactive, online laboratory where students can run demonstrations, as well as collect and analyze data). The text is automatically packaged with a FREE Study Guide that helps students review and test their mastery.
