Fundamentals of Cognitive Psychology by R. Reed Hunt and Henry C. Ellis is a brief core text with a value conscious price tag for courses in cognitive psychology. The 7th edition of this text presents brief coverage of perception, attention, memory, knowledge, problem solving, and emotion in a friendly and accessible style. By discussing selected experiments rather than exhaustively surveying the empirical literature, authors enable students to appreciate the intricacies of problem solving activity in cognition. The text incorporates real world examples, case studies, and useful key experiments on specific topics.
