- Pearson Education
The book is written from the standpoint of cognitive psychology, while integrating the contributions that disciplines such as neuroscience, biopsychology, linguistics, and artificial intelligence have made to the study of mind. It takes its organization largely from an information-processing conception of an adaptive mental system and attempts to capture the advances and intellectual excitement of research and thinking in the field of cognition. Stressing both ideas and their development; particular attention is given to research that has opened new areas of inquiry and shaped the field. Cognition focuses on the manner in which empirical research informs our understanding of the mind as well as central concepts and theoretical developments while avoiding an encyclopedic approach. The book provides an historical context for the evolution of important innovations in theory and method. A valuable reference book for any professional who needs a greater understanding of the mind.
