This fifth edition of the best-selling international cognitive psychology textbook has been substantially updated and restructured to reflect new developments in cognitive psychology, and made more student-friendly.

Established approaches covered in depth include:

  • Experimental cognitive psychology
  • Cognitive science with its focus on modelling
  • Cognitive neuropsychology with its focus on cognition following brain damage.

Extensive new material in this edition includes:

  • Cognitive neuroscience approaches such as brain scanning and imaging studies which illustrate the principles of brain function
  • New material on consciousness.

Throughout, the new material is fully integrated with more traditional approaches to create a comprehensive, coherent and totally current overview of perception, attention, memory, concepts, language, problem solving, judgement and reasoning.

A two-colour design, plus a rich array of supplementary multimedia materials, make this edition more accessible and entertaining for students.

The multimedia materials include:

  • A PowerPoint lecture course and MCQ Test Bank free to qualifying adopters
