    Cognitive Psychology: An Anthology of Theories, Applications and Readings exposes students to the unique and influential viewpoints of authors and scholars who are currently conducting research related to cognition. The essays and readings introduce readers to a broad spectrum of topics related to cognitive psychology to provide them with a strong, foundational knowledge of current theories, applications, and attitudes.

    The text begins with an overview of the field of cognitive psychology, as well as a discussion of its history. In later chapters, readings regarding cognitive neuroscience, perceptual processes, attention and consciousness, and repressed and false memories are presented. Students learn about language acquisitions in humans, animal communication and language, judgment and reasoning, human factors in engineering and performance, and more.

    The second edition features fresh organization, a more targeted approach with a single reading for each chapter, and new readings on sensation and perception, long-term memory, eyewitness memory, cognitive development in childhood, and imagery, among others.

    Cognitive Psychology is an excellent resource for undergraduate psychology courses.
