Overview

One of the top sellers in the field, Cognitive Psychology is the most comprehensive and balanced text in the area of undergraduate cognition. MacLin and MacLin, inheriting the textbook from the late Robert L. Solso, boldly revised and reorganized the Eighth Edition to reflect emerging trends in the field, while retaining the strengths that made it one of the most popular texts among students and professors. All chapters have undergone a thorough revision, with special attention to updating art and examples, as well as clarifying language. The text traces a sequential model of human cognition from sensation to perception, to attention, to memory, to higher-order cognition, and features new cutting-edge coverage of consciousness, cognitive neuroscience, memory and forgetting, and evolutionary psychology.

The authors have done an outstanding job of making very complex material accessible to students. The text is very readable, and uses real life examples to engage students.

Thomas R. Shaffer, South Dakota State University

The main strength of this textbook is the focus on cognition in everyday life. When students make a connection [from] the information in the textbook to their own lives, they are more apt to learn it and use it.”

Angie MacKewn, University of Tennessee at Martin

The engaging writing style and organization clearly distinguishes it from other texts. In addition, the emphasis on neuroscientific underpinnings of cognition is a major strength, pushing this text to the forefront of research in cognitive psychology.”

David Ludden, Lindsey Wilson College, Kentucky

Incl. new info on consciousness, neurocognitive imaging technology, parallel distributed processing etc.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The organization of this textbook follows an information processing sequence that starts with the perception of signals by the sensory/brain system to higher order processes such as memory, language, and thinking. The sixth edition removes some out of date studies, and adds recent findings in neurocognitive imaging technology. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
