Introduces students to their own senses, emphasising human sensory and perceptual experience and the basic neuroscientific underpinnings of that experience.Sensation and Perception, Fifth Edition presents a coherent and interesting introduction to the important topics in the field. The authors, specialists in their respective domains, strive to spread their enthusiasm for fundamental questions about the human senses and the impact that answers to those questions can have on medical and societal issues. The book is appropriate for courses in Sensation and Perception taught in the Psychology Department, and for courses in Perception, Sensory Systems, and Psychology of Perception.New to This Edition:“Scientists at Work” is a feature new to this edition that looks at an important discovery and explains the process of experimentation and hypothesis testing.“Questions to Contemplate” are a series of questions that appear at the beginning of each chapter and are “thought” based questions that the student should be able to answer after reading the chapter. These questions are creative and thoughtful and could be used by the instructor to stimulate class discussion, or for a formative (ongoing as the student works through the material) or summative (after the reading/teaching is completed) type of evaluation.
