Overview

Schacter, Gilbert, Wegner, and Nock’s Psychology, Third Edition is widely acclaimed for captivating students with contemporary psychology research on the major topics of the introductory course, while helping them develop critical thinking skills that will stay with them beyond the course term. Expert coverage of the DSM-5, quirky examples of thinking gone awry, scenarios based on common psychological misconceptions, and contributions from new co-author Matthew Nock highlight the new edition.

And now, this breakthrough text is available in a version created just for Canadian students and teachers.  It offers the same fascinating writing, helpful study tools, and keen eye for intriguing stories as Psychology, Third Edition, but with a wide range of Canadian examples and impactful work by Canadian researchers incorporated throughout.

Welcome Canadian author, Ingrid Johnsrude
Ingrid’s principal area of investigation is the neural basis of understanding speech, and she leads experiments examining how utterances are transformed into acoustic signals and then into meaning via a variety of cognitive processes. Her investigations span multiple levels—from understanding the brain structures involved in hearing and comprehension to observing the ways listeners deal with challenges such as background noise.
