“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 H. Logie, University of Edinburgh 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 carefullydesigned 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 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. Learning. 5. Episodic Memory: Organizing and Remembering. 6. Semantic Memory and Stored Knowledge. 7. Autobiographical Memory. 8. Retrieval. 9. Incidental Forgetting. 10. Motivated Forgetting. 11.

The Psychology of Language

Talking the Talk

From Data to Theory

Language, Psychology and Science

Third Edition

Trevor Harley University of Dundee, UK “A road trip through the varied landscape of psycholinguistics – including photos! Harley’s approachable style and frequent personal asides make the esoteric aspects of the field understandable, and he shows how everyday phenomena, such as “slips of the tongue” or children’s babblings, provide deep insight into how language works. Despite containing some fun topics, the book does not dumb down the science; it includes the latest findings from neuroscience and computational modeling and can function as quick reference for the expert as well as a thorough introduction for anyone who has marveled at our ability to speak.” - Gary Dell, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Language makes us human, but how do we use it and how do children learn it? Talking the Talk 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. This book 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 experiments to build models of language processing. The book focuses on controversy in modern psycholinguistics, and covers the 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 Talking the Talk 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, the book will be essential reading for all undergraduate students and those new to the topic, as well as the interested lay reader. Contents Preface. 1. Language. 2. Animals. 3. Children. 4. Thought. 5. Meaning. 6. Words. 7. Understanding. 8. Speaking. 9. End. 10. Next. Glossary. References.

psycholinguistics arena

Trevor Harley University of Dundee, UK “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’ 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 The Psychology of Language contains everything the student needs to know about the psychology of language, including how we acquire, understand, produce, and store language. The third edition contains 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. The Psychology of Language also demonstrates how language is related to the brain and to other aspects of cognition.

Understanding Consciousness


Second Edition

The Science of Subjectivity

Max Velmans Emeritus Professor of Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Visiting Professor of Consciousness Studies at the University of Plymouth, UK

Antti Revonsuo University of Turku, Finland “Everybody talks about consciousness, but hardly anyone has written a textbook about it that could be used as the basis for a survey course. Revonsuo’s book closes that gap.” John F. Kihlstrom, University of California, Berkeley “Revonsuo’s book is a major new discussion of consciousness, suitable for a wide range of readers. It is written in an admirably clear and scholarly way, and covers a wide range of issues thrown up by recent philosophical, psychological and neuroscientific research on consciousness. It would be excellent as a primary text for many introductory courses on consciousness, and I think this book will quickly become a major text in the area.” - Steve Torrance, Visiting Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Research in Cognitive Science, University of Sussex The study of consciousness is recognized as one of the biggest remaining challenges to the scientific community. This book provides a fascinating introduction to the new science that promises to illuminate our understanding of the subject. It covers all the main approaches to the modern scientific study of consciousness, and also gives the necessary historical, philosophical and conceptual background to the field. Current scientific evidence and theory from the fields of neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, brain imaging and the study of altered states of consciousness such as dreaming, hypnosis, meditation and out-of-body experiences is presented. The book provides an integrative review of the major existing philosophical and empirical theories of consciousness and identifies the most promising areas for future developments in the field. It offers a readable and timely introduction to the science of consciousness for anyone interested in this compelling area, especially undergraduates studying psychology, philosophy, cognition, neuroscience and related fields.

“If you’re interested in getting a good overview of contemporary approaches to understanding consciousness, both philosophical and experimental, I can recommend Understanding Consciousness, Second Edition. … You couldn’t ask for anything more comprehensive.” - Charles T. Tart, Professor, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto CA, and Professor Emeritus, Psychology, University of California, Davis “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 of the Journal of Consciousness Studies 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, this new edition adds fresh research, and deepens the original analysis in a way that reflects some of the fundamental changes in the understanding of consciousness that have taken place over the last ten years. 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, and neuroscientists.

Foundations of Sensation and Memory in the Real World Third Edition Perception Second Edition George Mather University of Sussex, UK

Gillian Cohen (retired), Professor of Psychology, The Open University, UK Martin A. Conway, University of Leeds, UK (Eds.) “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. The authors are a combination of established scientists and younger investigators, who have in common a broad approach to the topic that accepts the importance of both theory and its application. This book should prove a valuable resource.” - Alan Baddeley, University of York

Praise for the first edition: “Mather has included some excellent pedagogical features that put this book in a class by itself. ... Moreover, Mather’s conversational and interactive style of writing results in a book that is enjoyable as well as informative ... Would I use it for my S&P course? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’.” - Stephen F. Davis, in PsycCRITIQUES This comprehensive introduction to Sensation and Perception has been highly praised for its unique approach, which begins with the minor senses and progresses to vision. 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. This approach allows students to thoroughly grasp the fundamental principles in relation to the relatively simple sensory systems before moving on to the more complex topics. 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. • Now in full color!

Fundamentals of Cognition

Introducing Neuropsychology

Third Edition

Second Edition

Michael Eysenck Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

John Stirling, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK Rebecca Elliott, University of Manchester, 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, decision-making). 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 How come some people always remember a face? Is it really possible to do two things at once? Fundamentals of Cognition is a clear and reader-friendly introduction that will help students understand and answer these kinds of questions. Taking his cue from modern cognitive psychology, Mike Eysenck explores the key processes that allow us to make sense of the world around us. Whether we are aware of their workings or not, our abilities in attention, perception, learning, memory, language, problem solving, thinking and reasoning all help us to make decisions about how to cope with everyday life. This book takes a close look at all the relevant key findings and issues. It also offers accessible explanations of the more complex debates which spring up around them. 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. Contents 1. Visual Perception and Attention. 2. Learning and Memory. 3. Language. 4. Thinking and Reasoning. 5. Broader Issues. 2006: 7½x10: 520pp Hb: 978-1-84169-373-6: £47.50 Pb: 978-1-84169-374-3: £24.95

“The chapters are up-to-date and 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.” - Paul Richardson, Brain, Behaviour & Cognition Group, Sheffield Hallam University Introducing Neuropsychology, Second Edition 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. Each chapter has been fully revised and updated and new brainimaging data are incorporated throughout, especially in the later chapters on Emotion and Motivation, and Executive Functions. 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. 2008: 7½x10: 408pp Hb: 978-1-84169-653-9: £49.95 Pb: 978-1-84169-654-6: £23.50

Introduction to Neuropsychology Second Edition J. Graham Beaumont Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability, London, UK “An excellent introductory text. ... All the striking neuropsychological syndromes are lucidly described, and students will know that they are learning from a true expert with over thirty years of experience to draw on. The new chapters on imaging, degenerative conditions, profound forms of brain injury, and psychiatric conditions such as schizophrenia, as well as the increased focus on rehabilitation, are valuable additions which students will find fascinating. While the text will be particularly valuable for graduate students specializing in clinical neuropsychology, beginners in the field also will find it useful and accessible.” - Andrew Mayes, School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester Now in a substantially revised second edition, this text gives students a solid grounding in clinical and experimental neuropsychology. The second edition features a significant new section on neuroimaging and a new chapter on degenerative diseases and profound brain injury.

Animal Learning and Cognition Behavior Analysis and An Introduction Learning Third Edition

Fourth Edition

John M. Pearce University of Cardiff, UK

W. David Pierce, University of Alberta, Canada Carl D. Cheney, Utah State University, USA

“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.” - David Lieberman, University of Stirling 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. The third edition has been expanded to take account of the many exciting developments that have occurred over the previous 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. This textbook is accompanied by online instructor resources which are free of charge to departments who adopt this book as their text. They include chapter-by-chapter lecture slides, an interactive chapterby-chapter multiple-choice question test bank, and multiple-choice questions in paper and pen format. 2008: 7½x10: 432pp Hb: 978-1-84169-655-3: £44.95 Pb: 978-1-84169-656-0: £24.95

This essential textbook covers the basic principles in the field of behavior analysis and learned behaviors, as pioneered by B.F. Skinner. It 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. In addition, a website of supplemental resources for instructors and students makes this edition even more accessible and student-friendly. 2008: 7x10: 448pp Hb: 978-0-8058-6260-7: £39.95

Papini Texas Christian University, USA This is a core textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in Comparative Psychology, Animal Behavior, and Evolutionary Psychology. Its main goal is to introduce the student to evolutionary and developmental approaches to the study of animal behavior. The structure of the book reflects the principal areas of importance to psychology students studying animal behavior: evolution, physiological issues, learning and cognition, development, and social evolution. Throughout, this text includes many examples drawn from the study of human behavior, highlighting general and basic principles that apply broadly to the animal kingdom. 2008: 7⅜x9¼: 800pp Hb: 978-1-84169-459-7: £69.00 Pb: 978-1-84169-460-3: £29.95 www cognitiv iveps epsych ychologyarena com Order online for a 10% discount and free shipping on orders above $35 (US/Canada)/£20 (UK).

Cognitive Assessment An Introduction to the Rule Space Method Kikumi K. Tatsuoka Distinguished Research Professor, Emeritus, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA Series: Multivariate Applications

“Dr. K. Tatsuoka’s Rule Space Methodology is innovative and illuminating in its ability to assess and delineate the underlying pattern of cognitive skills and knowledge for individuals from a set of test scores.” - Lisa Harlow, University of Rhode Island 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. RSM is also used for medical diagnoses, genetics research, and to help classify music into various states of emotions for treating mental problems. 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.

Introductory Psychology Textbooks Fundamentals of Psychology Michael W. 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, University of Maryland Aimed at those new to the subject, Fundamentals of Psychology is a clear and readerfriendly 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 seamlessly brings together all the various related topics.
