Cognitive Psychology takes students to the forefront of the field and introduces them to key discoveries of cognitive psychology. With accessible and clear explanations, Anderson shows students how mental processes are investigated and how we know what we know about the mind. This book introduces students to both the cutting edge findings of cognitive neuroscience and classic behavioural studies. Experimental data, sample stimuli, brain images, and research tasks woven throughout the text give students a real understanding of how research is conducted and the excitement of discovery. Fascinating examples and applications of cognitive theory keep students engaged.
