Cognitive Psychology Connecting Mind Research and Everyday Experience by E. Bruce Goldstein Book PDF Summary
Connecting the study of cognition to everyday life in an unprecedented way, E. Bruce Goldstein’s COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY: CONNECTING MIND, RESEARCH, AND EVERDAY EXPERIENCE gives equal treatment to both the landmark studies and the cutting-edge research that define this fascinating field. The text employs a wealth of concrete examples and illustrations that help students understand the theories of cognition--driving home both the scientific importance of the theories and their relevance to students’ daily lives. Goldstein’s accessible narrative style blends with an art program that makes difficult concepts understandable. Students gain a true understanding of the behind the scenes activity that happens in the mind when humans do such seemingly simple activities as perceive, remember, or think. Goldstein’s also focuses on the behavioral and physiological approaches to cognition by including physiological materials in every chapter. As is typical of his work, this is a major revision that reflects the most current aspects of the field.
