Cognitive Psychology: Key Readings
D. A. Balota, Elizabeth J. Marsh
Psychology Press, 2004 - Psychology - 766 pages
Cognitive psychology is an enormous field with a rich history. One problem confronting instructors in cognitive psychology courses is covering such diverse topics as pattern recognition, attention, memory, language, decision-making, and problem solving. It is virtually impossible to both cover these topics and also provide details regarding the beauty of the experimental studies that have tackled important topics in a single textbook or in a semester of lectures. The goal of this book is to help fill this void and provide students with the opportunity to learn about the details of the actual articles and chapters that have had major influences in the development of this discipline. Each article has been carefully selected for its accessibility and importance to the field. In addition to introductory material written by the editors, the volume contains questions for class discussion, annotated bibliographies and full author and subject indexes, which make it an ideal, user-friendly textbook for undergraduate and graduate cognitive psychology courses.
