Cognition: Theory and Applications
You'll find coverage of these topics and much more in this revision of Stephen Reed's comprehensive, yet easy-to-understand, text. Well respected for its breadth of coverage and for the careful way it walks readers step by step through some of the more difficult experimental material, Cognition: Theory and Applications, Fourth Edition, provides an excellent overview of the major theories and experimental findings in the field. You'll find thorough contemporary coverage of short-term and long-term memory, problem solving, decision making, attention, and comprehension; memory codes, neuropsychological evidence relating imagery and perception, reinterpretation of images, the effect of expertise on categorization, assumptions of schema theory, and autobiographical memory; vowel discrimination, speech errors, aphasia, individual differences in comprehension, local and global coherence in text, situation models for text, ways of improving readability, transfer of problem representation, and pragmatic reasoning schemata and the effect of examples on creativity, the creation of new products, the effect of mood and decision frames on estimated probabilities, and action-based decision making.
