John R. Anderson
Students who take Cognitive Psychology are brought up to speed on the most recent developments in the discipline and are given an overview of cognitive psychology's most important findings. Anderson teaches students about how mental processes are researched and how we know what we know about the mind by providing explanations that are easy to understand and unmistakable. Students are given an introduction to both the leading edge results of cognitive neuroscience as well as classic behavioral investigations through the reading of this book. Students gain a genuine comprehension of how research is carried out as well as an appreciation for the thrill of discovery thanks to the inclusion throughout the text of experimental data, sample stimuli, brain scans, and research activities. Students are kept interested in cognitive theory through the use of fascinating examples and applications of the theory.
