Sensation And Perception Description: Sensation and Perception is written to introduce students to their own senses. Human sensory and perceptual experience is emphasized, and the neuroscientific underpinnings of that experience introduced. Chapters are written by experts in each of the sensory systems: by integrating current findings as the basics are presented, the authors impart to students that these are active areas of research. The text provides comprehensive treatment of higher perceptual functions (e.g., attention, music, language) as well as sensory systems beyond vision and audition (including, notably, a full chapter on Spatial Orientation and the Vestibular System as well as separate chapters on Taste and Olfaction). The new Third Edition reflects the growing contribution of imaging studies to the field, discusses applications of sensation and perception to clinical problems (e.g., visual search in radiology), and expands its treatment of modern theoretical approaches (e.g., Bayesian models).

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

Sensation And Perception Description: The highly accessible Sensation and Perception presents a current and accurate account of modern sensation and perception from both a cognitive and neurocognitive perspective. To show students the relevance of the material to their everyday lives and future careers, authors Bennett L. Schwartz and John H. Krantz connect concepts to real-world applications, such as driving cars, playing sports, and evaluating risk in the military. Interactive Sensation Laboratory Exercises (ISLE) provide simulations of experiments and neurological processes to engage readers with the phenomena covered in the text and give them a deeper understanding of key concepts. The Second Edition includes a revamped version of the In Depth feature from the previous edition in new Exploration sections that invite readers to learn more about exciting developments in the field. Additionally, new Ponder Further sections prompt students to practice their critical thinking skills with chapter topics.

Sensation And Perception Description: Everything that we experience depends on sensing and perceiving. Specialized receptors for the five senses - hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching - capture information from chemical compounds, compressed air, electromagnetic waves, mechanical sensations, and more. From that information, our brain creates an impression of the world around us. Sensation and Perception focuses on how these systems work, from the mechanics of individual cells to the interactions of thousands of cells in the brain. This book also delves into how our sensory capabilities change with age or damage. Readers of this new title from the acclaimed Gray Matter series will learn to understand how sensation and perception prove crucial to interpreting our surroundings, enjoying them, and even surviving in them.

Essentials Of Sensation And Perception Description: The study of sensation and perception looks at how we acquire, process, and interpret information about the outside world. By describing key ideas from first principles, this straightforward introduction provides easy access to the basic concepts in the subject, and incorporates the most recent advances with useful historical background. The text takes a uniquely integrative approach, highlighting fundamental findings that apply across all the senses - including vision, hearing, touch, pain, balance, smell and taste - rather than considering each sense in isolation. Several pedagogical features help students to engage with the material. ‘Key Term’ and ‘Key Concept’ boxes describe technical terms and concepts whilst ‘Question’ boxes relate the material to everyday questions about perception. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading, and the final chapter draws together the material from the previous chapters, summarizing the broad principles described, and outlining some major unresolved issues. Assuming no prior knowledge, this book is an accessible and up-to-date overview of the processes of human sensation and perception. Presented in full color, it is an ideal introduction for pre-undergraduate and first year undergraduate students on courses in psychology, as well as neuroscience and biology.
