Now in use at over 200 colleges and universities, Cognition: Exploring the Science of the Mind is one of the premier textbooks in the field. This exciting text challenges students to explore core concepts in cognitive psychology by focusing on the ideas behind the research, asking "Why is it important?" and "What does it really mean?" Professor Reisberg's unique approach draws on examples from a wide range of disciplines, including biology, linguistics, political science, economics, and philosophy, among others, and clearly demonstrates the real-world implications of theoretical issues.
Carefully revised to be more concise and accessible, the Third Edition features strengthened coverage of neuroscience, over 300 new citations, and a new Student Web Site.
