Cognitive Psychology A Student’s Handbook Sixth Edition Michael W. Eysenck, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK Mark T. Keane, University College Dublin, Ireland
Praise for the Fifth Edition: “It is the dynamism of the writing that marks this text out from the rest. The text does not simply reflect modern cognition, it makes clear and well-argued demands of it. While the structure of the text will ensure those with less clear interests in cognition will be able to take advantage of the raft of pedagogic techniques, the most talented students will have the opportunity to flourish. This isn’t a book only for note
taking: it is for understanding, for debating and for taking forward.” - Gerry Quinn, School of Psychology, University of St Andrews “Eysenck and Keane describe complicated things elegantly and lucidly. The book is remarkably up-to-date. I know that it will be well received in my own department, where there is a growing interest in fMRI [functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging] and I believe that this will be true of departments of psychology and cognitive science throughout the world. I do not think the material could have been better presented.” - Ian Gordon, University of Exeter January 2010: Hb: 978-1-84169-539-6: £54.95 Pb: 978-1-84169-540-2: £29.95 Complimentary copy available
Introductory Cognitive Psychology Textbooks
Fundamentals of Cognition Michael Eysenck Royal Holloway, University of London, UK “The chapters provide an excellent coverage of the different areas within cognitive psychology: not only are the traditional areas dealt with (memory, perception, language) but also areas which are often overlooked by comparable textbooks (human judgement, decisionmaking). This text is an excellent source for students of cognitive psychology who are looking for an introduction to the field and a broad summary of research issues that exist within it. Eysenck has a reputation for accessible writing and this text does not disappoint. The chapters are well structured and clear, I enjoyed the writing style which was informative and readable; jargon was clearly explained.” - John Parkinson, Lecturer in Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, University of Wales Bangor “Eysenck’s state-of-the-art account of findings and theories in cognitive psychology does an excellent job of conveying the excitement of research, and of relating the ideas to everyday experience. Written in an engaging personal style, the book provides a clear and accessible introduction to current work in the area, with balanced examples drawn from experiments, clinical cases, computer simulations and cutting-edge brain imaging research.” - Fergus Craik, Senior Scientist, Rotman Research Institute, Toronto Fundamentals of Cognition guides students through all the classic topics in cognitive psychology. New research from approaches in cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience is integrated and evaluated in a lively (but systematic) approach. The book provides a broad overview of current thinking and a thorough evaluation of the various theoretical approaches to basic cognitive processes. Written with introductory-level students in mind, it can be read easily by those with no previous knowledge of cognitive psychology. However, it also includes directions for more detailed and advanced study. A CD-ROM of supplementary resources is available to adopters. Contents 1. Visual Perception and Attention. 2.

David Groome University of Westminster, UK With Nicola Brace, Hazel Dewart, Graham Edgar, Helen Edgar, Anthony Esgate, Richard Kemp, Graham Pike & Tom Stafford “This is a very interesting introduction to cognitive psychology, distinguished from many of its competitors. It enhances theoretical insight by systematically combining chapters on normal and disordered cognitive functioning. It also continually highlights that cognitive functions are not independent, but instead form an integrated system aimed at understanding the world and producing coherent goal-directed behavior.” - Gezinus Wolters, Associate Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Leiden University 2006: 7x10: 480pp Hb: 978-1-84169-543-3: £49.95 Pb: 978-1-84169-544-0: £22.50 www.psypress.com/groome 60-day examination copy available

Identity The Journal of the Society for Research on Identity Formation (SRIF) EDITOR Alan S. Waterman, The College of New Jersey, USA Identity is international and multidisciplinary in scope, and this cutting-edge journal provides a forum for identity theorists and researchers around the globe to share their ideas and findings regarding the problems and prospects of human self-definition. The unifying thread of these articles is “identity” in its various manifestations throughout the life course.

Sui-Lan Tan, Kalamazoo College, USA; Peter Pfordresher, University at Buffalo, the State University of New York, USA; Rom Harré, Georgetown University, USA Why are some disturbances of air molecules heard as ‘noise’ while others are perceived as music? What happens at the level of the sound wave, the ear, and the brain when we perform or listen to music? How do musical abilities emerge and develop, and become refined as one acquires musical expertise? And what gives music its deep emotional significance, and its power to influence social behavior, across vastly different cultural contexts? These are some of the primary questions defining the field called ‘the psychology of music’ and driving the present volume. This book provides an introduction to classic and current studies in the psychology of music, combining a comprehensive summary with critical assessments of existing research. The volume captures the interdisciplinary breadth of the field, while covering central topics in depth. Part one explores sound and music at an acoustic level, explaining auditory events with respect to the workings of the ear and brain. Part two focuses on perception and cognition of melody, rhythm, and formal structure. Part three examines the emergence and development of musical skills, and turns to the most practical aspects of psychology of music: music practice and performance. Finally, part four broadens the discussion to the question of meaning in music, with respect to its social, emotional, philosophical, and cultural significance. Throughout, both behavioral and neuroscientific perspectives are developed. This book will be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of psychology and music, and will appeal to anyone else who is interested in the psychology of music. Contents 1. The Scope of Psychology in Music. Part 1. Foundations. 2. The Acoustics of Music. 3. Sound and the Neurophysiology of Hearing. 4. Neuroscience and Music. Part 2.

Cognitive Assessment An Introduction to the Rule Space Method Kikumi Tatsuoka Columbia University, USA Multivariate Applications Series “Rich content and brilliant work [that] provides a possible template for assessing the reliability of the underlying cognitive processes of an assessment. Examples span a rich and wide domain reflecting the author’s work in applying rule space to a wide array of assessments. … The book will absolutely make a significant contribution to the field.” - Gwyneth M. Boodoo, Ph.D., President, GMB Enterprises “This book reflects [Dr. K. Tatsuoka’s] accomplishments and contributions to educational assessment. It is remarkable in its extensiveness.” - Leona Aiken, Arizona State University This book introduces a new methodology for the analysis of test results. Free from ambiguous interpretations, the results truly demonstrate an individual’s progress. The methodology is ideal for highlighting patterns derived from test scores used in evaluating progress. Dr. Tatsuoka introduces readers to the Rule Space Method (RSM), a technique that transforms unobservable knowledge and skill variables into observable and measurable attributes. RSM converts item response patterns into attribute mastery probabilities. RSM is the only up-to-date methodology that can handle large scale assessment for tests such as the SAT and PSAT. PSAT used the results from this methodology to create cognitively diagnostic scoring reports. In this capacity, RSM helps teachers understand what scores mean by helping them ascertain an individual’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses. For example, two students may have the exact same score, but for different reasons. One student might excel at processing grammatically complex texts but miss the main idea of the prose, while another excels at understanding the global message. Such knowledge helps teachers customize a student’s education to his or her cognitive abilities. RSM is also used for medical diagnoses, genetics research, and to help classify music into various states of emotions for treating mental problems. The book opens with an overview of cognitive assessment research and nonparametric and parametric person-fit statistics. The Q-matrix theory is then introduced, followed by the Rule Space method. Various properties of attribute mastery probabilities are then introduced along with the reliability theory of attributes and its connection to classical and item response theory. The book concludes with a discussion of how the construct validity of a test can be clarified with the Rule Space Method. Intended for researchers and graduate students in quantitative, educational, and cognitive psychology, this book also appeals to those in computer science, neuroscience, medicine, and mathematics. The book is appropriate for advanced courses on cognometrics, latent class structures, and advanced psychometrics as well as statistical pattern recognition and classification courses taught in statistics and/or math departments.

Perspectives on Cognitive Task Analysis Historical Origins and Modern Communities of Practice Robert R. Hoffman, Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, Pensacola, USA Laura G. Militello, University of Dayton Research Institute, USA Expertise: Research and Applications Series This volume is the first comprehensive history of task analysis, charting its origins from the earliest applied psychology through to modern forms of task analysis that focus on the study of cognitive work. Through this detailed historical analysis, it is made apparent how task analysis has always been cognitive. Chapters cover the histories, key ideas, and contributions to methodology of a number of communities of practice, including Sociotechnics, European Work Analysis, Naturalistic Decision Making, Cognitive Systems Engineering, Ethnography, and Human Factors. Further, integrative chapters focus on the purposes of cognitive task analysis. It is shown how all the various communities of practice are living in the same scientific universe, though are in many ways distinctive in terms of their key concerns and main theories. It is a historiography of task analysis, and the people who invented task analysis. It is also an explanatory primer on what cognitive task analysis is all about and what it can do. Perspectives on Cognitive Task Analyis will be of value to professionals in allied disciplines who might come to rely on cognitive task analysis in their system development programs. It will be invaluable to students who need to know what task analysis and cognitive task analysis are really all about. For practitioners of cognitive task analysis, this volume is a major presentation of what their scientific universe is all about. Contents Part 1. History. 1. Introduction to Section 1. 2. A History of Task Analysis. 3. Evolution of Task Analysis into Cognitive Task Analysis: From Time and Motion Studies to ‘Man-Machine Systems’. 4. Defining and Bounding Cognitive Task Analysis. 5.

The Journal of Cognition and Development is the official journal of the Cognitive Development Society (CDS). Some CDS members are concerned with basic research or theory; others focus on policy issues and practical applications. The range of interests includes cognitive development during all stages of life, and we seek to understand ontogenetic processes in both humans and nonhumans. Finally, their interests encompass typical as well as atypical development, and we attempt to characterize both biological and cultural influences on cognitive change and continuity. The relationship between the journal and the society is symbiotic in that the journal enhances the field of cognitive development by providing a prestigious forum for innovative research and theory. It publishes the very best articles on all aspects of cognitive development. In addition to empirical reports, it features theoretical essays (occasionally accompanied by peer commentaries), and essay reviews of new and significant books. Criteria for acceptance of submitted manuscripts include:

Aging & Cognition Psychology of Ageing Patrick Rabbitt (Ed.) University of Oxford, UK Critical Concepts in Psychology Series Cognitive and biological ageing has become a fast-growing and dynamic area of study and research, and the scale of this acceleration in growth makes this new four-volume collection in the Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Psychology, especially timely. A primary question is why we and all other complex animals and plants age, a question studied mainly by biologists, and Volume I (Biological Bases of Ageing) includes key research on models for ethological and evolutionary ageing. It also takes full account of the body of work on the genetics of animal and human ageing and on genes that directly cause, or that interact with environmental influences to cause, individual differences in the rate of age-related changes. A quite distinct field of research has been the development of models for cognitive changes in the brain that are based entirely on behavioural evidence. Volume II (Cognitive Ageing) gathers together the most important work on the search for the
The third volume in this collection (Relating Cognitive Ageing to Brain Ageing) makes available the most significant recent research on how the amounts and time-courses of gross age-related changes in local areas of the brain affect cotemporaneous global and local changes in cognitive performance. Specific relationships between global brain changes and cognitive performance are explored, such as that between: increases in the incidence of white-matter lesions and progressive losses of memory and decision speed; cerebral blood flow and intelligence and information-processing speed; and memory impairment and losses of hippocampal volume. Key findings on the relationships between losses of tissue in the frontal lobes of the brain and changes in planning and intelligence is also gathered here, as is research on relationships between changes in neurotransmitter efficiency and in cognitive performance. Finally, the material collected in Volume IV (The Effects of Health, Demographics and Social Conditions on Rates of Change in Old Age: Interpreting Data from Large Studies) examines how the methodology of longitudinal studies and cross-sectional studies affects the conclusions that can be reached from each and explores recent statistical models to analyse complex data sets. This volume does not simply describe some of the recent discoveries in statistical modelling and experimental design that enhance our use of longitudinal and cross-sectional data, but illustrates applications of these models to obtain new substantive contributions to our knowledge of how longevity – and so the maintenance of mental abilities in old age – are affected by declining health and the increasing burden of pathologies that accumulate as age advances; by the availability or absence of social and family support; by the extent and quality of social networks, and socio-economic advantage with its concomitant benefits of better education and access to medical care; and by diet and the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in historical and scientific context, the Psychology of Ageing is destined to be a useful work of reference and valued by scholars, students, and practitioners as a primary research resource.

Introducing Neuropsychology Second Edition John Stirling & Rebecca Elliott Manchester University, UK Psychology Focus Series “A concise overview to the diverse and fascinating topics within this field. The chapters are up-to-date, well referenced and theoretical debates are explained in meaningful terms; particularly welcome are the contributions from neuroimaging and the stimulating impact this has made to neuropsychology in general. A highly recommended read.” - Dr Paul Richardson, Brain Behaviour & Cognition Group, Sheffield Hallam University This textbook investigates the functions of the brain and explores the relationships between brain systems and human behaviour. The material is presented in a jargon-free, easy to understand manner and aims to guide students new to the field through current areas of research. Following a brief history of the discipline and a description of methods in neuropsychology, the remaining chapters review traditional and recent research findings. Both cognitive and clinical aspects of neuropsychology are addressed, and the rapid developments in neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience resulting from traditional research methods as well as new brainimaging techniques are presented. Each chapter has been fully revised and updated and new brain-imaging data are incorporated throughout, especially in the later chapters on Emotion and Motivation, and Executive Functions. As in the first edition, key topics are dealt with in separate focus boxes, and ‘interim comment’ sections allow the reader a chance to ‘take stock’ at regular intervals. The book assumes no particular expertise on the reader’s part in either psychology or brain physiology. Thus, it will be of great interest not only to those studying neuropsychology and cognitive neuroscience, but also to medical and nursing students. Contents 1. The Foundations of Neuropsychology. 2.

This compendium is a comprehensive reference manual containing an extensive selection of instruments developed to measure a range of neurological conditions, both progressive and non-progressive. It includes established instruments as well as newly developed scales and covers all aspects of the functional consequences of acquired brain impairment. This text provides a unique review of specialist instruments for the assessment of people with neurological conditions, such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, stroke and traumatic brain injury. Part A presents scales examining body functions, including consciousness and orientation, general cognitive functions, specific cognitive functions (e.g., language, memory), regulation of behaviour, drive, and emotion and motor-sensory functions. Part B reviews scales of daily living activities and community participation. Part C focuses on contextual factors, including environmental issues and social supports and the final part contains multidimensional scales. Each instrument is described as a stand-alone report using a uniform format. A brief history of the instrument’s development is provided, along with a description of item content and administration/scoring procedures. Psychometric properties are reviewed and a critical commentary is provided. Up to a dozen key references are cited and in most cases the actual scale is included, giving the reader easy access to the instrument. The structure of the book directly maps onto the taxonomy of the recently introduced and influential International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (2001), enabling linkage of clinical concepts across health conditions. This compendium provides a repository of approximately 150 instruments which are described in detail and critically reviewed. It will be a valuable reference for clinicians, researchers, educators, graduate students and a practical resource for those involved in the assessment of people with brain impairment. Contents 1.

Vicki Anderson, University of Melbourne, Australia; Rani Jacobs, Royal Children’s Hospital, Victoria, Australia; Peter Anderson, University of Melbourne, Australia (Eds.) Studies on Neuropsychology, Neurology and Cognition Series This volume has as its primary aim the examination of issues concerning executive function and frontal lobe development. While many texts have addressed these issues, this is the first to do so within a specifically developmental framework. This area of cognitive function has received increasing attention over the past decade, and it is now established that the frontal lobes, and associated executive functions, are critical for efficient functioning in daily life. It is also clear, and of particular relevance to this text, that these functions develop gradually through childhood, and then deteriorate during old age. These developmental trajectories, and the impact of any interruption to them, are the focus of this volume. Contents Part 1. A Developmental-Theoretical Framework for Executive Function. P.J.

Tim Bayne, University of Oxford, UK Jordi Fernández, University of Adelaide, Australia (Eds.) Macquarie Monographs in Cognitive Science Series This collection of essays focuses on the interface between delusions and selfdeception. As pathologies of belief, delusions and self-deception raise many of the same challenges for those seeking to understand them. Are delusions and self-deception entirely distinct phenomena, or might some forms of self-deception also qualify as delusional? To what extent might models of self-deception and delusion share common factors? In what ways do affect and motivation enter into normal belief-formation, and how might they be implicated in self-deception and delusion? The essays in this volume tackle these questions from both empirical and conceptual perspectives. Some contributors focus on the general question of how to locate self-deception and delusion within our taxonomy of psychological states. Some contributors ask whether particular delusions – such as the Capgras delusion or anosognosia for hemiplegia – might be explained by appeal to motivational and affective factors, and some contributors provide general models of motivated reasoning, against which theories of pathological belief-formation might be measured. The volume will be of interest to cognitive scientists, clinicians, and philosophers interested in the nature of belief and the disturbances to which it is subject. Contents T. Bayne, J.

Cognitive Neuroscience The Student’s Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience Second Edition Jamie Ward University of Sussex, UK Praise for the first edition: “The Student’s Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience is unique in that there are no comparable textbooks aimed at this level, and it does an excellent job of providing a solid grounding in this broad field.” Charvy Narain, in Nature Neuroscience “Jamie Ward has done a great service to the neuroscience community: he has written an easy to read, enjoyable introduction to cognitive neuroscience that will attract many students to the discipline. The concepts, results and methods of basic neuroscience, clinical neuropsychology, neuroimaging and cognitive pyschology are explained in simple direct language; many examples and illustrations bring the sciences of the mind and brain to life. Perhaps the best feature of the book is the seamless weaving of the various research areas that jointly define cognitive neuroscience into a coherent whole. I will certainly use this book for my courses.” - Alfonso Caramazza, the Cognitive Neuropsychology Laboratory, Harvard University “This is a terrific book. It is timely, up-to-date, written in a lively and engaging style and full of helpful guides and illustrations. It is particularly useful in including chapters on methods as well as on more traditional topic areas, in integrating work from neuropsychology with electrophysiological and imaging studies, and in covering social and emotional processes as well as cognitive processing.” - Glyn Humphreys, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, University of Birmingham Reflecting recent changes in the way cognition and the brain are studied, this thoroughly updated edition of the best-selling textbook provides a comprehensive and student-friendly guide to cognitive neuroscience. Jamie Ward provides an easy-to-follow introduction to neural structure and function, as well as all the key methods and procedures of cognitive neuroscience, with a view to helping students understand how they can be used to shed light on the neural basis of cognition. The book presents an up-to-date overview of the latest theories and findings in all the key topics in cognitive neuroscience, including vision, attention, memory, speech and language, numeracy, executive function and social and emotional behavior. This edition also contains two completely new chapters on developmental cognitive neuroscience and hearing. Throughout, case studies, newspaper reports and everyday examples are used to help students understand the more challenging ideas that underpin the subject.

Developmental Social Cognitive Neuroscience
This volume in the JPS Series is intended to help crystallize the emergence of a new field, “Developmental Social Cognitive Developmental Neuroscience”, aimed at elucidating the Social Cognitive Neuroscience neural correlates of the development of socio-emotional experience and behavior. No one any longer doubts that infants are born with a biologically based head start in accomplishing their important life tasks – genetic resources, if you will, that are exploited differently in different contexts. Nevertheless, it is also true that socially relevant neural functions develop slowly during childhood, and that this development is owed to complex interactions among genes, social and cultural environments, and children’s own behavior. A key challenge lies in finding appropriate ways of describing these complex interactions and the way in which they unfold in real developmental time. This is the challenge that motivates research in developmental social cognitive neuroscience. Edited by
Philip David Zelazo Michael Chandler Eveline Crone
The chapters in this book highlight the latest and best research in this emerging field, and they cover a range of topics, including the typical and atypical development of imitation, impulsivity, novelty seeking, risk taking, self and social awareness, emotion regulation, moral reasoning, and executive function. Also addressed are the potential limitations of a neuroscientific approach to the development of social cognition. Intended for researchers and advanced students in neuroscience and developmental, cognitive, and social psychology, this book is appropriate for graduate seminars and upper-level undergraduate courses on social cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, social development, and cognitive development.

JOURNAL Announcing a New Journal for 2010
Cognitive Neuroscience EDITOR Jamie Ward, University of Sussex, UK Launching in 2010, Cognitive Neuroscience aims to publish high quality empirical and theoretical papers on any topic in the field of cognitive neuroscience including, but not limited to: perception, attention, memory, language, action, decision-making, emotions, and social cognition. The journal will fill an important niche in the market by publishing shorter papers (up to 4000 words) with fast reviewing and rapid online publication (within 6 weeks of acceptance). In addition, longer discussion papers will evaluate current hot topics in the field with critical analysis in the form of peer commentary (8000 word reviews, 800 word commentaries). There are no page charges and we are able to offer free color printing where color is necessary. We hope that this exciting new journal will become an important focal point for researchers in this field. Cognitive Neuroscience is not restrictive with regards to the methodologies that are considered suitable for inclusion. For example, electrophysiology, haemodynamic brain responses, and behavioural measures (e.g. reaction times) are all related to brain function and cognition, even if some are more direct measures of neural activity than others. The methodology only needs to be appropriate to the theoretical questions addressed.
Thinking Visually Steven K. Reed Center for Research in Mathematics and Science Education, San Diego, USA This volume documents the many ways in which pictures, visual images, and spatial metaphors influence our thinking. It discusses both classic and recent research that supports the view that visual thinking occurs not only where we expect to find it, but also where we do not. Much of comprehending language, for instance, depends on visual simulations of words or on spatial metaphors that provide a foundation for conceptual understanding. Thinking Visually supports comprehension by reducing jargon and by providing many illustrations, educational applications, and problems for readers to solve. It provides a broad overview of topics that range from the visual images formed by babies to acting classes designed for the elderly, from visual diagrams created by children to visual diagrams created by psychologists, from producing and manipulating images to viewing animations. The final chapters discuss examples of instructional software and argue that the lack of such software in classrooms undermines the opportunity to develop visual thinking. The book includes the Animation Tutor™ CD to illustrate the application of research on visual thinking to improving mathematical reasoning. Contents Part 1. Introduction. 1. Images versus Words. 2. Images before Words. 3. Estimation. Part 2. Visual Metaphors and Images. 4. Spatial Metaphors. 5. Producing Images. 6. Manipulating Images. Part 3. Visual Displays. 7. Viewing Pictures. 8.

Closing the Gap Between Neurophysiology and Behaviour Dietmar Heinke & Eirini Mavritsaki (Eds.) University of Birmingham, UK Advances in Behavioural Brain Science Series “A captivating journey from spiking neurons to attention and behavior. Written by the greatest living experts, the book provides new connections between neurobiology and behavioral sciences.” Eugene M. Izhikevich, The Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, California Classically, behavioural neuroscience theorizes about experimental evidence in a qualitative way. However, more recently there has been an increasing development of mathematical and computational models
There is considerable diversity between models with respect to the methodology of designing a model, the degree to which neurophysiological processes are taken into account and the way data (behavioural, electrophysiological, etc.) constrains a model. This book presents examples of this diversity and in doing so represents the state-of-art in the field through a unique collection of papers from the world’s leading researchers in the area of computational modelling in behavioural neuroscience. Based on talks given at the third Behavioural Brain Sciences Symposium, held at the Behavioural Brain Sciences Centre, University of Birmingham, in May 2007, the book appeals to a broad audience, from postgraduate students beginning to work in the field to experienced experimenters interested in an overview.

Comparative & Behavioral Psychology BESTSELLING TEXTBOOK!
Animal Learning and Cognition An Introduction Third Edition John Pearce Cardiff University, UK. “There are very few instances in which one of the world’s leading researchers is willing to write a textbook in his area of expertise, and even fewer where the resulting text is beautifully clear and interesting. Pearce’s text is of just this quality; any student fortunate enough to read it will be exposed to a lucid, entertaining, and stimulating introduction to what we know about animal learning and cognition.” - Dr. David Lieberman, Department of Psychology, University of Stirling “This new edition of Pearce’s text integrates a solid grounding in associative learning theory with an introduction to topics in animal cognition such as memory, spatial behavior, and social cognition. A particularly noteworthy feature is the way in which students are encouraged to think critically but open mindedly about the many intriguing new findings on animal tool using, imitation, theory of mind, and the like. As a basic text that covers the field of animal learning and cognition as it exists in the early 21st Century, it has few, if any, competitors.” - Professor Sara J. Shettleworth, Department of Psychology, University of Toronto Animal Learning and Cognition: An Introduction provides an up-to-date review of the principal findings from more than a century of research into animal intelligence. This edition has been expanded to take account of the many exciting developments that have occurred over the last ten years. The book opens with a historical survey of the methods that have been used to study animal intelligence, and follows by summarizing the contribution made by learning processes to intelligent behavior. Topics include Pavlovian and instrumental conditioning, discrimination learning, and categorization. The remainder of the book focuses on animal cognition and covers such topics as memory, navigation, social learning, language and communication, and knowledge representation. Expanded areas include extinction (to which an entire chapter is now devoted), navigation in insects, episodic memory in birds, imitation in birds and primates, and the debate about whether primates are aware of mental states in themselves and others. Issues raised throughout the book are reviewed in a concluding chapter that examines how intelligence is distributed throughout the animal kingdom. The broad spectrum of topics covered in this book ensures that it will be of interest to students of psychology, biology, zoology, and neuroscience. Since very little background knowledge is required, the book will be of equal value to anyone simply interested in either animal intelligence, or the animal origins of human intelligence.

of experimental results, and in general these models are more clearly defined and more detailed than their qualitative counter parts. These new computational models can be set up so that they are consistent with both single neuron and whole-system levels of operation, allowing physiological results to be meshed with behavioural data – thus closing the gap between neurophysiology and human behaviour.

Behavior Analysis and Learning Fourth Edition W. David Pierce, University of Alberta, Canada Carl D. Cheney, Utah State University, USA Behavior Analysis and Learning, Fourth Edition is an essential textbook covering the basic principles in the field of behavior analysis and learned behaviors, as pioneered by B. F. Skinner. The textbook provides an advanced introduction to operant conditioning from a very consistent Skinnerian perspective. It covers a range of principles from basic respondent conditioning through applied behavior analysis into cultural design. Elaborating on Darwinian components and biological connections with behavior, the book treats the topic from a consistent worldview of selectionism. The functional relations between the organism and the environment are described, and their application in accounting for old behavior and generating new behavior is illustrated. Expanding on concepts of past editions, the fourth edition provides updated coverage of recent literature and the latest findings. There is increased inclusion of biological and neuroscience material, as well as more data correlating behavior with neurological and genetic factors. The material presented in this book provides the reader with the best available foundation in behavior science and is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in psychology or other behavior-based disciplines. A website of supplemental resources for instructors and students makes this new edition particularly accessible and student-friendly. Contents 1.

Learning from Animals? Examining the Nature of Human Uniqueness Louise S. Röska-Hardy, Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities, Essen, Germany Eva M. Neumann-Held, University of Witten-Herdecke, Germany (Eds.) Human language, cognition, and culture are unique; they are unparalleled in the animal kingdom. The claim that we can learn what makes us human by studying other animal species provokes vigorous reactions and many deny that comparative research can shed any light on the origins and character of human distinctive capacities. However, Learning from Animals? presents empirical research and an analysis of comparative approaches for an understanding of human uniqueness, arguing that we cannot know what capacities are uniquely human until we learn what other species can do. This interdisciplinary volume explores the prospects and problems of comparative approaches for understanding modern humans’ abilities by presenting: (1) the latest findings and theoretical approaches in primatology, comparative psychology, linguistics, and philosophy; (2) methodological reflections on the prospects and challenges of understanding human capacities through comparative research strategies; and (3) discussions of conceptual and ethical issues. This is the first book to address the issues raised by comparative research from such a diverse perspective. Contents L.S.

Consciousness NEW EDITION OF TEXTBOOK!
Understanding Consciousness Second Edition Max Velmans Goldsmiths, University of London, UK “This is an important book. It offers an excellent review of the whole range of philosophical and scientific attempts to understand consciousness, interwoven with a compelling account of the author’s own preferred option (i.e., ‘reflexive monism’), for which he is already well known. This further account of his views will be welcomed by all concerned.” - Christopher M.H. Nunn, Associate Editor, Journal of Consciousness Studies “What an intellectually rich and readable journey through the tangled fabric of consciousness studies! The consciousness debate is enriched immeasurably by this fine and disciplined journey, with just a pinch of ‘mind-dust’ to flavor the universe. Students of mind will find this to be among the finest and most disciplined journeys into the still dark corners of consciousness studies.” - Jaak Panksepp, Bailey Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science, College of Veterinary Medicine, Washington State University Praise for the first edition: “Understanding Consciousness presents a lucid, indeed masterly, account of the philosophical issues involved.” - Professor Jeffrey Gray, Institute of Psychiatry, London, in the Times Higher Educational Supplement “Those who are engaged in the cognitive sciences should read this book so as to stimulate their own thinking. ... The implications for the field are quite profound.” - Professor Igor Aleksander, Imperial College, London, in Trends in Cognitive Sciences Understanding Consciousness, Second Edition provides a unique survey and evaluation of consciousness studies, along with an original analysis of consciousness that combines scientific findings, philosophy and common sense. Building on the widely-praised first edition of the book, this new edition adds fresh research, and
The book is divided into three parts. Part One surveys current theories of consciousness, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses. Part Two reconstructs an understanding of consciousness from first principles, starting with its phenomenology, and leading to a closer examination of how conscious experience relates to the world described by physics and information processing in the brain. Finally, Part Three deals with some of the fundamental issues such as what consciousness is and does, and how it fits into to the evolving universe. As the structure of the book moves from a basic overview of the field to a successively deeper analysis, it can be used both for those new to the subject and for more established researchers. Understanding Consciousness tells a story with a beginning, middle and end in a way that integrates the philosophy of consciousness with the science. Overall, the book provides a unique perspective on how to address the problems of consciousness and as such, will be of great interest to psychologists, philosophers, neuroscientists and other professionals concerned with mind/body relationships, and all who are interested in this subject.

Creativity Handbook of Imagination and Mental Simulation Keith D. Markman, Ohio University, USA; William M.P. Klein, University of Pittsburgh, USA; Julie A. Suhr, Ohio University, USA (Eds.) Over the past thirty years, and particularly within the last ten years, researchers in the areas of social psychology, cognitive psychology, clinical psychology, and neuroscience have been examining fascinating questions regarding the nature of imagination and mental simulation – the imagination and generation of alternative realities. Some of these researchers have focused on the specific processes that occur in the brain when an individual is mentally simulating an action or forming a mental image, whereas others have focused on the consequences of mental simulation processes for affect, cognition, motivation, and behavior. This Handbook provides a novel and stimulating integration of work on imagination and mental simulation from a variety of perspectives. It is the first broad-based volume to integrate specific sub-areas such as mental imagery, imagination, thought flow, narrative transportation, fantasizing, and counterfactual thinking, which have, until now, been treated by researchers as disparate and orthogonal lines of inquiry. As such, the volume enlightens psychologists to the notion that a wide-range of mental simulation phenomena may actually share a commonality of underlying
processes. Contents Part 1. The Mental Simulation of Action and Behavior. J. Decety, J. Stevens, Action Representation and its Role in Social Interactions. S. Beilock, I.

Human Potential Exploring Techniques Used to Enhance Human Performance David Vernon Canterbury Christ Church University, UK
Memory Alan Baddeley, York University, UK; Michael W. Eysenck, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK; Michael C. Anderson, University of St Andrews, UK “This book represents an exciting new text on human memory. The authors weave basic research from behavioral studies of memory with the latest in neuroscientific thinking. The writing is accessible and should make it a popular text with students and professors alike. I strongly recommend it.” - Henry L. Roediger, III, Washington University, St. Louis
“I did not have to get very far into this book before I realized that it offers a very different treatment of the subject of human potential. David Vernon has done an incredible amount of homework in terms of providing not just a review of the extant literature on the various topics, but also at providing the critical evaluations of these studies that is absolutely necessary for the reader to be informed about these techniques.” - Philip L. Ackerman, Professor of Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology
“This excellent book meets a long-standing need for an introductory text in human memory and learning. It has been written in an engaging down-to-earth style and the coverage is absolutely up-to-date yet grounded in classic ideas and observations. Recent work on underlying brain mechanisms is also included. I recommend the book enthusiastically to students and to the interested general reader.” - Fergus Craik, Rotman Research Institute and University of Toronto
Throughout time, people have explored the ways in which they can improve some aspect of their performance. Such attempts are more visible today, with many working to gain an ‘edge’ on their performance, whether it is to learn a new language, improve memory or increase golf handicaps. This book examines a range of techniques that are intended to help improve some aspect of performance, and examines how well they are able to achieve this.
“Baddeley, Eysenck and Anderson are among the best known and most widely respected cognitive psychologists internationally. The result of their collaboration is a textbook that is comprehensive and soundly scientific, while remaining engaging and highly accessible to all students of human memory.” - Robert Logie, University of Edinburgh
The various performance enhancing techniques available can be divided into those where the individual remains passive (receiving a message, suggestion or stimulus) and those where the individual needs to take a more active approach. Human Performance looks at a range of techniques within each of these categories to provide the reader with a sense of the traditional as well as the more contemporary approaches used to enhance human performance. The techniques covered include hypnosis, sleep learning, audio and visual cortical entrainment as well as mnemonics, meditation, speed-reading, biofeedback, neurofeedback and mental imagery practice. This is the first time such a broad range of techniques has been brought together to be assessed in terms of effectiveness. It will be useful to all psychology and sports science students, practicing psychologists, life coaches and anyone else interested in finding out about the effectiveness of performance enhancement techniques Contents 1.

“I do not know of any Memory textbook that covers as many aspects of the topic in such a comprehensive and interesting way for a very broad audience.” - Lars-Goran Nilsson, Stockholm University and Stockholm Brain Institute “What distinguishes this delightful and informative book from other textbooks is its eclecticism: It places equal emphasis on data and theory, on typical people and clinical populations, on laboratory experiments and real-world applications, and on methodologies and approaches from experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Best of all, the authors have a historical sensibility while being very up-to-date, which gives the reader a good sense of how the field of memory research developed and where it is heading. I recommend the book enthusiastically.” - Morris Moscovitch, Professor of Psychology, University of Toronto and Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care People seem to be intrigued by memory, and by its sometimes spectacular failure in (for example) people with amnesia. However, students of memory sometimes fail to retain this fascination. The reason is clear: in order to study memory we must carry out carefully-designed experiments, which can seem boring even when they are exciting science. Fortunately, we now know enough about memory to relate laboratory studies to the world beyond. In other words, our scientific knowledge of memory and how it works can help us to explain those aspects of memory that most people find of greatest interest. This book presents a thorough, accessible and appealing overview of the field, written with students in mind, by some of the world’s
“This book provides a comprehensive and highly readable summary of the psychology of human potential. Readers will appreciate the excellent summaries of the theories and techniques that have been developed over the years. This book makes an important contribution to the science of positive psychology and is a must read for anyone with an interest in what works and doesn’t work in the areas of human performance and potential.” - Philip J. Corr, Professor of Psychology,
leading researchers. It starts with a brief overview and explanation of the scientific approach to memory before going on to discuss the basic characteristics of the various memory systems and how they work. Summaries of short-term and working memory are followed by chapters on learning, the role of organization in memory, the ways in which our knowledge of the world is stored, retrieval, and on intentional and motivated forgetting. The latter half of the book involves the broader application of our basic understanding of memory, with chapters on autobiographical memory, amnesia, and on memory in childhood and aging. After chapters discussing eyewitness testimony and prospective memory, a final chapter addresses an issue of great importance to students – how to improve your memory. Each chapter of the book is written by one of the three authors, an approach which takes full advantage of their individual expertise, style and personality. This enhances students’ enjoyment of the book, allowing them to share the authors’ own fascination with human memory. Contents 1. What is Memory? 2. Short-term Memory. 3. Working Memory. 4.

Memory in the Real World Third Edition Gillian Cohen, The Open University, UK Martin Conway, University of Leeds, UK (Eds.) “This book is a very welcome addition to the memory literature, providing thorough and detailed reviews of the growing body of research concerned with taking memory out of the laboratory.” - Alan Baddeley, University of York This fully revised and updated third edition of the highly acclaimed Memory in the Real World includes recent research in all areas of everyday memory. Distinguished researchers have contributed new and updated material in their own areas of expertise. The controversy about the value of naturalistic research, as opposed to traditional laboratory methods, is outlined, and the two approaches are seen to have converged and become complementary rather than antagonistic. The editors bring together studies on many different topics, such as memory for plans and actions, for names and faces, for routes and maps, life experiences and flashbulb memory, and eyewitness memory. Emphasis is also given to the role of memory in consciousness and metacognition. New topics covered in this edition include life span development of memory, collaborative remembering, déjà vu and memory dysfunction in the real world. Memory in the Real World will be of continuing appeal to students and researchers in the area.

Handbook of Metamemory and Memory John Dunlosky, Kent State University, Ohio, USA Robert A. Bjork, University of California, Los Angeles, USA (Eds.) “This volume represents a magnificent collection of chapters on metamemory, or one’s knowledge of one’s own memory processes. The authors write about some situations in which people are fairly accurate in their knowledge, as well as other cases in which intuitions are remarkably erroneous. The authors represent a stellar collection of researchers in this area, which makes the book a fitting tribute to the late Tom Nelson who pioneered the study of metamemory. The volume should be of interest to all researchers studying human memory and would make a great source for a graduate or upper-level undergraduate seminar.” - Henry L. Roediger, III, James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor, Washington University in St. Louis This Handbook examines the interplay between metamemory and memory. Each contributor discusses cutting-edge theory and research that, in some way, showcases the symbiotic relationship between metamemory and memory. Together, these chapters support a central thesis, which is that a complete understanding of either metamemory or memory is not possible without understanding their mutual influence. The inspiration for this volume was the life and research of Thomas O. Nelson, whose pioneering and influential research in the fields of metamemory and memory consistently highlighted their integrated nature. Contents J. Dunlosky, R.A.

Current Issues in Applied Memory Research Graham Davies, University of Leicester, UK Dan Wright, University of Sussex, UK (Eds.) Current Issues in Memory Series Research on applied memory is one of the most active, interesting and vibrant areas in experimental psychology today. This book provides descriptions of cutting-edge research and applies them to three key areas of contemporary investigation: education, the law and neuroscience. In the area of education, findings from the study of memory are described which could have a major impact on testing practice, revision techniques for examinations and teaching basic literacy and numeracy. In applications to the law, recent findings shed new light on the dynamics of child abuse investigations, the status of traumatic memories recovered after long delays and a further challenge for the eyewitness: change blindness. Finally, in neuroscience, contributions cover the frightening question of whether patients can remember incidents during surgical operations under anaesthetic, the unexpected impact of handedness and rapid eye movements on memory proficiency and the status of déjà vu: mystical experience or memory error? These accounts of recent research on applied memory have been written by leading experts in the field from both Europe and America, with the non-specialist in mind. They will interest students who wish to extend their reading beyond core material in cognitive psychology, graduates on more specialised courses in educational, forensic and neuropsychology, academics and indeed, all those who wish to enrich their knowledge of the contemporary frontiers of applied memory research.

The Visual World in Memory James R. Brockmole (Ed.) University of Edinburgh, UK Current Issues in Memory Series “The Visual World in Memory offers both cognitive scientists and the interested lay-person an enjoyable stroll through the latest thinking on how we perceive the visual world. Brockmole has gathered some of the world’s leading experts as tour guides. They provide a highly integrated and comprehensive update of current theory in visual cognition, including topics as wide-ranging as face recognition, scene analysis, and eyewitness memories.” Michael Tarr, Brown University The book examines how well we remember what we see. Research in human memory for visual material varies tremendously across the time scales, stimuli, and scenarios of interest. Because of these distinct pursuits, research in the field of ‘visual memory’ is in practice rather compartmentalized and as such is disseminated across a range of literatures. The Visual World in Memory pulls together this disparate field with a series of chapters, each written by a leading expert, that concisely present the state-of-thescience in all the areas of research. The result is a single source of information that bridges the divides that separate the field as a whole. Each chapter reviews and analyzes current theories and controversies regarding such issues as visual and spatial working memory, memory for visual features, conjunctions, objects, and locations, memory for faces, memory for real-world scenes, memory for visual events, the role of visual memory in motor planning and action, the relationship between visual memory, reference frames, and navigation, and visual imagery. The rigorous discussion and analysis included in each chapter will appeal to established researchers and vision scientists whilst the breadth of the book will make it an ideal companion for students learning about memory.

Principles of Memory
Aimee Surprenant & Ian Neath Purdue University, USA Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series In over 100 years of scientific research on human memory, and nearly fifty years after the so-called cognitive revolution, we have nothing that really constitutes a widely accepted and frequently cited law of memory, and perhaps only one generally accepted principle. The purpose of this monograph is to begin to rectify this situation by proposing seven principles of human memory that apply to all memory. These principles are qualitative statements of empirical regularities that can serve as intermediary explanations and which follow from viewing memory as a function. They apply to all types of information, to all memory systems, and to all time scales. The principles highlight important gaps in our knowledge, challenge existing organizational views of memory, and suggest important new lines of research. This volume is intended for people (from advanced undergraduates to seasoned researchers) in the field of memory, although it will be of interest to those who would like a comprehensive overview of the fundamental regularities in cognitive functioning. Contents 1. Introduction. 2. Systems or Process? 3. Principle 1: The Cue Driven Principle. 4. Principle 2: The Encoding-Retrieval Principle. 5. Principle 3: The Cue Overload Principle. 6. Principle 4: The Reconstruction Principle. 7. Principle 5: The Impurity Principle. 8. Principle 6: The Relative Distinctiveness Principle. 9. Principle 7: The Specificity Principle. 10.

Emotional Memory Across the Adult Lifespan Elizabeth A. Kensinger Boston College, USA Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series Though many factors can influence the likelihood that we remember a past experience, one critical determinant is whether the experience caused us to have an emotional response. Emotional experiences are more likely to be remembered than nonemotional ones, and over the past couple of decades there has been an increased interest in understanding how emotion conveys this memory benefit. This book begins with a broad overview of emotion, memory, and the neural underpinnings of each, providing the reader with an appreciation of the complex interplay between emotion and memory. It then examines how emotion influences young adults’ abilities to store information temporarily, or over the long term. It explains
emotion’s influence on the memory processes that young adults use consciously and on the processes that guide young adults’ preferences and actions without their awareness. This book then moves on to describe how each of these influences of emotion are affected by the aging process, and by age-related disease, providing the reader with a lifespan perspective of emotional memory. Within each of the domains covered, the book integrates research from cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuropsychological perspectives, examining both the behavioral and thought processes that lead to emotion’s effects on memory and also the underlying brain processes that guide those influences of emotion. This book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in memory, emotion, and aging, working in the fields of cognitive psychology, cognitive or affective neuroscience, and developmental or lifespan psychology. Contents Part 1. Introduction and Background. 1. Emotion, Memory, and Their Interactions. 2. The Neurobiology of Emotion and Memory. 3. Methods for Investigating Emotion-Memory Interactions. Part 2.

The Development of Memory in Infancy and Childhood Second Edition Mary Courage, Memorial University, Canada Nelson Cowan, University of Missouri, USA (Eds.) Studies in Developmental Psychology Series “Describing a wealth of empirical evidence, this volume provides a comprehensive, authoritative and very up to date account of research into children’s memory.” Jackie Andrade, University of Plymouth “This edited volume presents a balanced, up-to-date account of memory development from infancy through childhood. Each chapter focuses on a currently-active area of research, ranging from the crib to the courtroom, from cognitive neuroscience to sociocultural influences. Both researchers and students will find the book clear and readable.” - Patricia H. Miller, University of Georgia “The editors have assembled outstanding chapters from leading researchers on all aspects of the study of memory development. There is added value because all of the chapters address practical concerns as well as theoretical issues. Because of the importance of memory development, these reviews of cutting edge research will benefit all teachers and researchers in child development.” - Rachel Keen, University of Virginia Human memory is not only the repository of our past but the essence of who we are. As such, it is of enduring fascination. We marvel at its resilience in some situations and its fragility in others. The origin of this extraordinary cognitive capacity in infancy and childhood is the focus of vigorous research and debate as we seek to understand the record of our earliest beginnings. The first edition of this volume, The Development of Memory in Childhood, documented the state-of-the-science of memory development a decade ago. This new edition, The Development of Memory in Infancy and Childhood, provides a thorough update and expansion of the previous text and offers reviews of new
research on significant themes and ideas that have emerged since then. The book includes applications of basic memory processes to a variety of real-world settings from the courtroom to the classroom. Including contributions from many of the best researchers in the field, this classic yet contemporary volume will appeal to senior undergraduate and graduate students of developmental and cognitive psychology, as well as to developmental psychologists who want a compendium of current reviews on key topics in memory development.

New Issues and New Perspectives Olivier Luminet, Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium Antonietta Curci, University of Bari, Italy (Eds.) “This book provides an updated overview of various issues examined in the FBM literature in the past and currently by a group of well-known and accomplished investigators in the field. Consequently, the book should serve as an importance resource for future FBM researchers as it provides a foundation for previous concerns while exploring recent issues using new data.” - Lauren Shapiro, North Dakota State University We all have memories of highly emotional personal and public events that may have happened some years ago but which are felt as strongly as if they happened yesterday. We remember where they happened, the people who were with us, and seemingly irrelevant details such as the weather, particular sounds or specific clothes. Why do we remember these things? Is it because such events are so deeply emotional or so unexpected or because people talk about them so many times? Why are these “flashbulb memories” so vivid and lasting? Flashbulb Memories: New Issues and New Perspectives explores these questions in the first book on flashbulb memories (FBMs) for more than a decade. It considers the many developments over the last ten years, including new models of FBM formation, advances in statistical methods and neuroscience, and two key public events, the death of Princess Diana and the September 11th attacks in the US, which can help test FBM. The book examines the status of FBMs as “special” or “ordinary” memory formations, and the expert contributors represent a balance between those that favour each approach. It also investigates controversial topics of research such as: •
Are emotional, cognitive, or social factors highly relevant for the formation of FBMs?
How can sociological, historical, and cultural issues help us to understand the process of FBMs?
What are the differences between FBMs, memories for traumatic experiences, and highly vivid personal memories?
How can we provide a valid and reliable measure for FBMs?
This book gathers together specialists in the field in order to make significant progress in this area of research which has remained divisive for the past thirty years. It will provide essential reading for researchers in FBM and also be of interest to those in related areas such as social psychology, cognitive psychology, crosscultural psychology, sociology, political sciences and history as well as clinicians dealing with those who have strong FBMs after personal traumatic events.

Interactions Between Short-Term and Long-Term Memory in the Verbal Domain Annabel Thorn, University of Bristol, UK Mike Page, University of Hertfordshire, UK (Eds.) “This highly stimulating book offers views from some of the best scientists in the field of verbal short-term memory - a topic with an impressive long-term pedigree which remains the focus of contemporary debate. The prose and academic content are readily accessible to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, while the new theoretical advances would interest active researchers.” - Robert H. Logie, Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh “The relationship between short-term and long-term memory is fundamental in cognitive psychology. This book brings together the best recent research on the topic, not merely describing mutual influences between short-term and long-term memory but elucidating the underlying mechanisms. It is a timely and important collection.” - Jackie Andrade, Professor of Psychology, University of Plymouth The relationship between short-term and long-term memory systems is an issue of central concern to memory theorists. The association between temporary memory mechanisms and established knowledge bases is now regarded as critical to the
development of theoretical and computational accounts of verbal short-term memory functioning. However, to date there is no single publication that provides dedicated and full coverage of current understanding of the association between short-term and long-term memory systems.

www.thinking-and-reasoning-arena.com Foundations of Sensation and Perception
Second Edition George Mather University of Sussex, UK “This second edition adds tremendous value to an already excellent text. It presents a solid foundation in physiology and psychology of the senses in a very accessible and engaging manner. It is an excellent choice for introductory as well as advanced courses and has the breadth and depth to serve as a basic reference text for all.” - Patrick Cavanagh, Université Paris Descartes and Harvard University “Mather does an excellent job of bringing the topic of Sensation and Perception to life using many examples from the ‘real world’ as well as giving a comprehensive overview of both recent and classic experimental findings. The book is highly recommended for students who are new to the topic.” - Dr. Jamie Ward, University of Sussex “This is an excellent book with thorough coverage of all five senses grounded in clear descriptions of what is being sensed and why. The book has useful boxes that define key terms and excellent tutorials at the end of each chapter so that students can actively engage with the subject.” - Professor Iain D. Gilchrist, University of Bristol “George Mather did it again! Students of perception will be even happier with this second edition, especially as it now includes state of the art sections on two highly active research areas: multisensory processing and synesthesia. It will also prove to be an excellent source for anyone who is eager to find out about the fundamental role of our senses in perceiving the real and artificial world.” - Professor Frans Verstraten, Helmholtz Institute, Utrecht University
Praise for the first edition:
The first edition of this comprehensive introduction to Sensation and Perception was highly praised for its unique approach, which begins with the minor senses and progresses to vision. This approach allows students to grasp the fundamental principles in relation to the relatively simple sensory systems before moving on to the more complex topics. The book begins with an introductory chapter on general physiological, perceptual and theoretical principles which gives the reader the conceptual tools to build a clear understanding of how we perceive the world. The next two chapters then flesh out basic topics, such as transduction, receptive fields, and sensory adaptation, via coverage of the minor senses (touch, balance, smell, and taste). Later chapters on hearing and vision build on these foundations. Unlike other perception textbooks, this has a whole chapter on Individual Differences, which considers potential sources of difference such as age, sex, expertise and culture. This full-color second edition has been revised and updated to include: •
Revised and expanded coverage of taste processing and perception, touch perception, pitch perception, and receptive field modeling
New sections on word perception, the size after-effect, crowding, scene perception, and optic flow
A completely new chapter devoted to multi-sensory processing and synesthesia, with a new tutorial on attentional effects in perception
A new tutorial on visual dysfunction in artists.
The book includes a number of helpful textbook features, such as key terms, chapter summaries, and student and instructor supplementary resources. There are also ‘Tutorial’ sections in each chapter, which provide an opportunity for students to advance their studies by exploring supplementary information on recent or controversial developments. Further, over 700 references to original source material lead the interested reader into the specialist literature. Foundations of Sensation and Perception provides students with a thorough analysis of our perceptual experience, how it relates to the physical properties of the world and how it is linked to the biological properties of the brain. It will be an invaluable resource for those studying psychology and neuroscience, enabling the reader to achieve a firm grasp of current knowledge concerning the complex processes that underlie our perception of the world. Student Resources: Perception Student Learning Program The student website includes our Perception Student Learning Program (Perception SLP) which offers a unique and innovative approach to study. The Perception SLP is available free of charge to departments adopting Foundations of Sensation and Perception by George Mather. Each chapter from Foundations of Sensation and Perception is condensed into a concise summary version, providing an effective set of revision notes. These notes also expand on and elucidate the book’s content, with references to specific pages in the textbook. ‘Must know’ information is presented in a clear, accessible style, along with sections to stretch more advanced students.

The Frog who Croaked Blue Synesthesia and the Mixing of the Senses Jamie Ward University of Sussex, UK “Synesthesia has long been regarded as a curiosity. In this book Jamie Ward successfully places synesthesia in a broader context and conveys the current excitement in the field.” - V.S. Ramachandran, Center for Brain and Cognition, UCSD, and author of Phantoms in the Brain “This very readable book provides an entertaining and informative foray into the fascinating world of synaesthesia, where words can have tastes, letters may be coloured, and the sound of a frog may indeed be blue. In seeking to explore and explain synaesthesia, the book covers such phenomena as visual experience in the blind, phantom limb pain in amputees, and drug-induced sensory experiences to form an interesting and highly enjoyable read.” - Anina N. Rich, Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, Macquarie University As little Edgar Curtis lay on his porch, he remarked to his mother how the noise of the rifle range was black, the chirp of the cricket was red, and the croak of the frog was bluish. Edgar, like many

other people, has synesthesia – a fascinating condition in which music can have color, words can have taste, and time and numbers float through space.
Information-Processing Channels in the Tactile Sensory System
Everyone will be closely acquainted with at least six or seven people who have synesthesia but you may not yet know who they are because, until very recently, synesthesia was largely hidden and unknown. Now science is uncovering its secrets and the findings are leading to a radical rethink about how our senses are organized. In this timely and thought-provoking book, Jamie Ward argues that sensory mixing is the norm even though only a few of us cross the barrier into the realms of synesthesia.
A Psychophysical and Physiological Analysis
How is it possible to experience color when no color is there? Why do some people experience touch when they see someone else being touched? Can blind people be made to see again by using their other senses? Why do scientists no longer believe that there are five senses? How does the food industry exploit the links that exist between our senses? Does synesthesia have a function? The Frog Who Croaked Blue explores all these questions in a lucid and entertaining way, making it fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the intriguing workings of the mind. Contents 1.

George A. Gescheider, Professor Emeritus, Hamilton University, USA; John H. Wright, retired; Ronald T. Verrillo, deceased (Eds.) Scientific Psychology Series Information-Processing Channels in the Tactile Sensory System addresses the fundamental question of whether sensory channels, similar to those known to operate in vision and audition, also operate in the sense of touch. Based on the results of psychophysical and neurophysiological experimentation, the authors make a powerful case that channels operate in the processing of mechanical stimulation of the highly sensitive glabrous skin of the hand. According to the multichannel model presented in this monograph, each channel, with its specific type of mechanoreceptor and afferent nerve fiber, responds optiimally to particular aspects of the tactile stimulus. It is further proposed that the tactile perception of objects results from the combined activity of the individual tactile channels. This work is important because it provides researchers and students in the field of sensory neuroscience with a comprehensive model that enhances our understanding of tactile perception. Contents 1. Channels in Touch. 2. Identification of Specific Neural Systems Responsible for Mechanoreception. 3. The Neural Bases of the Tactile Systems. 4. From Neural Systems To Information-Processing Channels. 5. Properties of Tactile Channels. 6. The Functional Roles of Channels. 7. Channel Interactions. 8. Conclusions.

Embodiment, Ego-Space, and Action Roberta L. Klatzky, Brian MacWhinney, Marlene Behrmann, Carnegie Mellon University, USA (Eds.) Carnegie Mellon Symposia on Cognition Series The majority of research on human perception and action examines sensors and effectors in relative isolation. What is less often considered in these research domains is that humans interact with a perceived world in which they themselves are part of the perceptual representation, as are the positions and actions (potential or ongoing) of other active beings. It is this self-in-world representation that we call embodiment. Increasingly, research demonstrates that embodiment is fundamental to both executing and understanding spatially and interpersonally directed action. It has been theorized to play a role in reaching and grasping, locomotion and navigation, infant imitation, spatial and social perspective taking, and neurological dysfunctions as diverse as phantom limb pain and autism. Few formal ideas have been put forward, however, to describe how self-representation functions at a mechanistic level and what neural structures support those functions. This volume reports on the 2006 Carnegie Symposium on Cognition, which brought
together the contributions to these issues from a group of researchers who span perspectives of behavioral science, neuroscience, developmental psychology and computation. Together they share their findings, ideas, aspirations, and concerns.

Cognitive and Cultural Influences on Eye Movements Keith Rayner, University of California, San Diego, USA; Deli Shen, Xuejun Bai, Guoli Yan, Tianjin Normal University, China (Eds.) It is well-known that cognitive variables influence eye movements during reading. To what extent do cultural differences influence eye movements? This volume contains chapters that examine these two issues. The first half of the volume documents recent research findings with respect to models of eye movement control in reading, eye movements and visual processing, and eye movements during scene perception, search, and mental rotation. The second half of the volume deals with two main cultural issues: eye movements in reading Chinese and cultural influences on eye movements. A number of experts provide overviews of their research findings concerning the topics in the five sections of the volume. Readers interested in eye movements in reading, cognitive influences on eye movements, and cultural influences on eye movements will find the chapters valuable reading. Contents Part 1. Introduction.

Talking the Talk
The Psychology of Language From Data to Theory Third Edition Trevor Harley University of Dundee, UK
Language, Psychology and Science
“I want this book for me, not just for my students. For the student, it’s an exceptionally thorough, but lively, introduction to language use in a wider context. For me, it’s a valuable reminder of psycholinguistics’s evolution from its concerns with the psychological reality of grammar, to its current spot at the center of modern cognitive neuroscience.” - Gary S. Dell, University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign
Trevor A. Harley University of Dundee, UK Language makes us human, but how do we learn and use it? This book is an introduction to the psychology of language. Written for the reader with no background in the area or knowledge of psychology, it explains how we actually “do” language: how we speak, listen, and read. Talking the Talk provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to psycholinguistics, the study of the psychological processes involved in language. It shows how it’s possible to study language experimentally, and how psychologists use these studies to build models of language processing. The book covers the major current controversies in the area as well as all the main topics, including how children acquire language, how language is related to the brain, and what can go wrong – and what can be done when something does go wrong. Structured around questions that people often ask about language, the emphasis of this book is how scientific knowledge can be applied to practical problems. It also stresses how language is related to other aspects of psychology, particularly in whether animals can learn language, and the relation between language and thought. Lively and amusing, Talking the Talk will be essential reading for undergraduate students and those new to the topic, as well as the interested lay reader.
The Psychology of Language, Third Edition, contains everything the student needs to know about the psychology of language, including how we acquire, understand, produce, and store language. This edition contains new chapters on how children learn to read, and how language is used in everyday settings. It also describes recent research on the impact of new techniques of brain imaging. The text is comprehensive and written in a lively and accessible style. It covers all the main topics in this complex field, focusing on reading, writing, speaking, and listening in both adult and child language. There is an emphasis on language processing as well as language production and coverage of the social basis of language. The text covers recent connectionist models of language, describing complex ideas in a clear and approachable manner. Following a strong developmental theme, the text describes how children acquire language (sometimes more than one), and also how they learn to read.

Phonology for Communication Disorders Martin J. Ball, Nicole Müller, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA; Ben Rutter, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, USA This textbook describes the approaches to phonology that are most relevant to communication disorders. It examines schools of thought in theoretical phonology, and their relevance to description, explanation and remediation in the clinical context. A recurring theme throughout the book is the distinction between phonological theories that attempt elegant, parsimonious descriptions of phonological data, and those that attempt to provide a psycholinguistic model of speech production and perception. This book introduces all the relevant areas of phonology to the students and practitioners of speech-language pathology and is a companion volume to the authors’ Phonetics for Communication Disorders. Please see the ‘Also Available’ list at the end of this section for details of Phonetic for Communications Disorders. Contents Introduction. 1. Introduction and Background. 2. Sonority Theory. 3.

Expository Discourse in Children, Adolescents, and Adults Development and Disorders Marilyn A. Nippold, University of Oregon, USA Cheryl M. Scott, Rush University Medical Center, USA (Eds.) New Directions in Communication Disorders Research Series School success in the 21st Century requires proficiency with expository discourse – the use and understanding of informative language in spoken and written modalities. This occurs, for example, when high school students read their textbooks and listen to their teacher’s lectures, and later are asked to demonstrate their knowledge of this complex topic through oral reports and essay examinations. Although many students are proficient with the expository genre, others struggle to meet these expectations. This book is designed to provide information on the use and understanding of expository discourse in school-age children, adolescents, and young adults. Recently, researchers from around the world have
been investigating the development of this genre in typical students and in those with language disorders. Although many books have addressed the development of conversational and narrative discourse, by comparison, books devoted to the topic of expository discourse are sparse. This cross-disciplinary volume fills that gap in the literature and makes a unique contribution to the study of language development and disorders. It will be of interest to a range of professionals, including speech-language pathologists, teachers, linguists, and psychologists who are concerned with language development and disorders.

Crosslinguistic Approaches to the Psychology of Language Research in the Tradition of Dan Isaac Slobin Jiansheng Guo, California State University, East Bay, USA; Elena Lieven, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany; Nancy Budwig, Clark University, USA; Susan Ervin-Tripp, University of California, Berkeley, USA; Keiko Nakamura, Keio University, Tokyo, Japan; Şeyda Özçalışkan, Georgia State University, Atlanta, USA (Eds.) Psychology Press Festschrifts Series This volume covers state-of-the-art research in the field of crosslinguistic approaches to the psychology of language. The forty chapters cover a wide range of topics that represent the many research interests of a pioneer, Dan Isaac Slobin, who has been a major intellectual and creative force in the field of child language development, linguistics, and psycholinguistics for the past four decades. Slobin has insisted on a rigorous, crosslinguistic approach in his attempt to identify universal developmental patterns in language learning, to explore the effects of particular types of languages on psycholinguistic processes, to determine the extent to which universals of language and language behavior are determined by modality (vocal/auditory vs. manual/visual) and, finally, to investigate the relation between linguistic and cognitive processes. In this volume, researchers take up the challenge of the differences between languages to forward research in four major areas with

pathology, as well as researchers and practitioners specializing in the many specific languages discussed in the book.
Psychology of Language & Reading
which Slobin has been concerned throughout his career: language learning in crosslinguistic perspective (spoken and sign languages); the integration of language specific factors in narrative skill; theoretical issues in typology, language development and language change; and the relationship between language and cognition. All chapters are written by leading researchers currently working in these fields, who are Slobin’s colleagues, collaborators or former students in linguistics, psychology, anthropology, and cognitive science. Each section starts with an introductory chapter that connects the themes of the chapters and reviews Slobin’s contribution in the context of past research trends and future directions. The whole volume focuses squarely on the central argument: universals of human language and of its development are embodied and revealed in its diverse manifestations and utilization. Crosslinguistic Approaches to the Study of Language is a key resource for those interested in the range of differences between languages and how this impacts on learning, cognition and language change, and a tribute to Dan Slobin’s momentous contribution to the field.

Infant Pathways to Language Methods, Models, and Research Directions John Colombo, University of Kansas, USA; Peggy McCardle, Lisa Freund, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, Maryland, USA (Eds.) The recent progress in cognitive neuroscience, and the importance of genetic factors and gene-environment interactions in shaping behavioral functions in early childhood, have both underscored the primacy of early experience and development on brain development and function. The contributors to this volume discuss different paradigms and approaches in infant language and cognition, pushing the frontiers of research by innovatively combining methods, introducing new measures, and demonstrating the use of technologies and measurement approaches that can inform the study of word learning and categorization, gaze, attention, gesture, and physiological functions. The volume offers a blend of theories and empirical evidence to support, refute, or modify them. Most chapters examine the link between theory and methodology, and their appearance together in a single volume serves to inform and engage multiple disciplines, to engage everyone to think across disciplines and paradigms, to embrace the integration of creativity and science as the field continues to study in greater depth and with innovative measures and approaches, the infant pathways to language. Infant Pathways to Language is of interest to a wide range of students, researchers, and professionals with an interest in infant cognitive and language development. Contents Introduction. P.

Advances in Morphological Processing
Reading and Dyslexia in Different Orthographies Nicola Brunswick, Middlesex University, UK; Siné McDougall, University of Swansea, UK; Paul de Mornay Davies, Middlesex University, UK (Eds.) This book provides a unique and accessible insight into current research in different orthographies. While most research into reading and spelling has been conducted in English, this text presents cross-language comparisons to provide insights into universal aspects of reading development and developmental dyslexia in alphabetic and non-alphabetic languages. The book brings together contributions from a unique grouping of leading literacy researchers from around the world. It begins by examining the development of language skills in monolingual speakers of alphabetic and non-alphabetic languages, including sign language. The second section explores literacy acquisition in bilingual children learning to read in languages with different spelling-sound rules, including English, French, Greek, Welsh and Japanese. The third section is devoted to developmental dyslexia in monolingual and bilingual speakers of different languages. The final section explores the contribution of brain imaging to the study of impaired and unimpaired reading, giving an up-to-the-minute picture of how the brain deals with different languages and writing systems. This book will be of great use to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates who have an interest in language acquisition, reading and spelling as well as speech and language therapists, teachers and special educational needs professionals.

Language Learning and Development (LL&D) serves as a vehicle for interaction among the broad community of scholars and practitioners who investigate language learning, including language learning in infancy, childhood, and across the lifespan; language in both typical and atypical populations and in both native- and second-language learning. LL&D welcomes scholars who pursue diverse approaches to understanding all aspects of language acquisition.
Section Editor, Cognitive Neuroscience of Language David Poeppel, New York University, USA Language and Cognitive Processes (LCP) provides an international forum for the publication of theoretical and experimental research into the mental processes and representations involved in language use. The development of cognitive neuroscience methodologies has significantly broadened the empirical scope of experimental language studies, and in light of the strong interest in and growing influence of these new tools, in 2009 LCP broadens its remit by publishing two additional issues a year devoted to the Cognitive Neuroscience of Language. All types of articles will be considered, including reviews, whose submission is encouraged. Manuscripts should be submitted through the journal’s manuscript central site: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/plcp, clearly marked for Cognitive Neuroscience of Language.

Thinking & Reasoning Warren Thorngate, Carleton University, Canada; Robyn M. Dawes, Carnegie Mellon University, USA; Margaret Foddy, Carleton University, Canada Merit-based tests and contests have become popular methods for allocating rewards – from trophies to contracts, jobs to grants, admissions to licenses. With origins in jurisprudence, methods of rewarding merit seem fairer than those rewarding political or social connections, bribery, aggression, status, or wealth. Because of this, meritbased competitions are well-suited to the societal belief that people should be rewarded for what they know or do, and not for who they know or are; however, judging merit is rarely an easy task – it is prone to a variety of biases and errors. Small biases and errors, especially in large competitions, can make large differences in who or what is rewarded. It is important, then, to learn how to spot flaws in procedures for judging merit and to correct them when possible. Based on over twenty years of theory and research in human judgment, decision making and social psychology, this unique book brings together for the first time what is known about the processes and problems of judging merit and their consequences. It also provides practical suggestions for increasing the fairness of merit-based competitions, and examines the future and limits of these competitions in society. Contents 1. Introduction. 2. Merit and Bias. 3. Lessons from Clinical Research. 4. Standards and Double Standards. 5. Rules of the Game. 6. Organizing Adjudication Committees. 7. Committee Deliberations. 8. Competitions Small and Large. 9. The Evolution and Future of Competitions. November 2008: 6x9: 200pp Hb: 978-0-8058-5835-8: £43.50 www.psypress.com/9780805858358 60-day examination copy available
Mathematical Reasoning Raymond Nickerson The development of mathematical competence - both by humans as a species over millennia and by individuals over their lifetimes is a fascinating aspect of human cognition. This book explores when and why the rudiments of mathematical capability first appeared among human beings, what its fundamental concepts are, and how and why it has grown into the richly branching complex of specialties that it is today. It discusses whether the ‘truths’ of mathematics are discoveries or inventions, and what prompts the emergence of concepts that appear to be descriptive of nothing in human experience. Also covered is the role of esthetics in mathematics: what exactly are mathematicians seeing when they describe a mathematical entity as ‘beautiful’? There is discussion of whether mathematical disability is distinguishable from a general cognitive deficit and whether the potential for mathematical reasoning is best developed through
This volume is unique in the vast range of psychological questions it covers, as revealed in the work habits and products of numerous mathematicians. It provides fascinating reading for researchers and students with an interest in cognition in general and mathematical cognition in particular. Instructors of mathematics will also find the book’s insights illuminating. Contents 1. What is Mathematics? 2. Counting. 3. Numbers. 4. Deduction and Abstraction. 5. Proofs. 6. Informal Reasoning. 7. Representations. 8. Infinity. 9. Infinitesimals. 10. Predilections. 11. Esthetics in Mathematics. 12. The Usefulness of Mathematics. 13. Foundations. 14.

Fundamentals of Psychology Michael Eysenck Royal Holloway, University of London, UK “This must be surely one of the most comprehensive psychology textbooks in existence. It covers the diverse and multi-leveled discipline that psychology is and it does so in a highly sophisticated yet also readable and interesting way. I appreciated the historical perspective, and the focus on long-standing issues that perplexed and fascinated psychological scientists over the years, and found new framings with the introduction of new methods and techniques of inquiry.” – Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland “Eysenck has written a thorough yet engaging introduction to the science of psychology. The book speaks with a unified voice, pulling in historical examples where they are important, yet still covering cutting-edge research of recent years. He does not shy away from controversial issues in the field, but covers them evenhandedly. The last three chapters on research methods are excellent; I strongly recommend this book.” – Henry Roediger III, Washington University in St. Louis “In my opinion Eysenck is the finest textbook author in the world at this level. The sheer breadth of material with which he is comfortable is most impressive, and he has a unique ability to communicate complex and contemporary material so as to make it accessible and interesting.” – Matt Jarvis,Visiting Tutor in Education, Southampton and Keele Universities Aimed at those new to the subject, Fundamentals of Psychology is a clear and reader-friendly full-color textbook that will help students explore and understand the essentials of psychology. This text offers a balanced and accurate representation of the discipline through a highly accessible synoptic approach, which

Putting Psychology in its Place
Graham Richards Former Professor at Staffordshire University, UK The third edition of Putting Psychology in its Place builds on the previous two editions, introducing the history of psychology and placing the discipline within a historical context. It aims to answer questions about the role of psychology in modern society, by critically examining issues such as how psychology developed, why psychoanalysis had such an impact and how the discipline has changed to deal with contemporary social issues such as religion, race and gender. This new third edition contains two completely new chapters: Emotion: The Problem or the Whole Point? and Psychology, Money and Institutions. An expanded Epilogue has also been added which incorporates a discussion of the conceptual issues raised in the book and which corresponds with the new BPS requirements for undergraduate courses. Other chapters, including those on psychology and the brain, social psychology and the psychology of madness, as well those on gender, religion and race have also been substantially revised.
Putting Psychology in its Place is imaginatively written and accessible to all. It is an invaluable introductory text for undergraduate students of the history of psychology and will also appeal to postgraduates, academics and anyone interested in psychology or the history of science.
