From the Back Cover:

“There are many strengths to this book . . . perhaps the most important of these is the conceptual framework around which each topic is discussed. The material is highly contemporary. Overall the content covers the appropriate material for the cognitive components of a degree in Psychology.”
–Dr Richard J. Tunney, Universityof Nottingham

“This book gives a refreshing insight into the basics of cognitive psychology, and it will stimulate students to think in a scientific way.”
Eric Soetens, University of Brussels(VUB), Belgium

 

What do looking for your suitcase on a baggagecarousel at 4 o’clock in the morning, sorting out clothes in time for the summer, and, waiting in the rain for the bus that never comes, all have in common?

They all demonstrate how the concepts of Cognitive Psychology can be found in everyday life.

Cognitive Psychologyprovides a lively and engaging introduction to the field, explaining how the principles of attention might be related to DJing, how the information processing framework allows a computer to encode Shakespeare, and, how the Incredible Hulk may well have inspired contemporary research on emotion. It also offers a complete coverage of all the British Psychological Society (BPS) required topics including memory, language and reasoning.

Underpinned throughout by classic and contemporary research, this text provides a clear and detailed account of key experiments, theories and concepts with critical analysis of the issues surrounding them.  Examples, full colour photos and illustrations are included throughout to animate the theoretical discussion and enable students to grasp the practical applications of Cognitive Psychology.
