This book presents a coherent overview of cognitive psychology organized by themes that cut across topic areas. Written by well-known researchers, it is up-to-date in describing ongoing controversies in research, providing summaries of key experiments that distinguish between them and promoting thinking critically about current research and theories. The focus on the importance of physical and computational constraints on cognition is preserved throughout the book.
