<i> Understanding Cognition <d> provides a lively, accessible and thorough introduction to this exciting and rapidly developing brannch of psychology. It is intended primarily for first year undergraduates, and for pre-degree students who seek a deeper appreciation of contemporary cognitive psychology. The book is divided into three sections, which cover: the major structures, processing systems and mental operations involved in memory, perception, attention, skills and language; cognition in action; and approaches to modelling cognition, including cognitive neuropsychology and connectionist approaches. Learning is supported throughout through the inclusion of reading lists, discussion questions, activities and case studies.

Industry Reviews

"A well-researched and well -presented book which takes an interesting approach to cognitive psychology .... It seems to me a very good book for students taking first-year psychology courses at university either as psychology majors or as subsidiary students." Professor Martin Conway, University of Bristol

"Overall I thought that the book was enjoyable to read, well written, and reasonably comprehensive in its coverage." Tim J Perfect, Perception
