Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldstein's COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERDAY EXPERIENCE gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. The text employs a wealth of concrete examples and illustrations that will help students understand the theories of cognition-driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students' daily lives. Goldstein's accessible narrative style blends with an art program that exceeds all expectations. Students will leave this text with a true understanding of the behind the scenes activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceiving, remembering, or thinking. Goldstein's coverage also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of Bruce Goldstein's work, this is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field. To help reinforce concepts, the text is packaged with COGLAB 2.0: THE ONLINE COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY LABORATORY, which gives both students and instructors the chance to participate as subjects in research experiments.
