About the book: Cognitive processes enable us to experience the world around us: to recognise familiar faces, to communicate to one another through speech and writing, to feel emotion as we recall memories from the past. Cognitive Psychology provides a dynamic and exciting insight into this illuminating subject, leading us through such topics as attention, memory, judgement and decision making, and introducing us to the latest computational and imaging techniques through which our understanding of these topics is being continually enhanced. With state-of-the-art introductions from internationally recognised experts, Cognitive Psychology conveys a sense of excitement in the subject which will be sure to engage and enthuse any student.
