This revised second edition of Cognitive Psychology provides the strong research base of the first edition along with substantial updates in three key areas: neuroscience, action research, and neural networks. Instructors will appreciate the book's treatment of the latest research developments in imaging methods, declarative knowledge, associative learning, and implicit vs. explicit memory, and countless other topics. Students will respond to the real-life examples employed in discussions such as adversarial problem solving and its relation to law and business, language processing as it applies to writing, and the use of the divided-attention task in training air force pilots. Several interim summaries per chapter separate the material into manageable sections and allow students to check their understanding as they read. With its conversational style and broad pedagogical program, this meticulously researched text is invaluable to the student of cognitive psychology.
