Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldsteina€™s COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERYDAY EXPERIENCE gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. A wealth of concrete examples and illustrations help students understand the theories of cognition-driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to studentsa€™ daily lives. Goldsteina€™s accessible narrative style blends with an art program that makes difficult concepts understandable. Students gain a true understanding of the a€œbehind the scenesa€ activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of his work, this fourth edition is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field.
