Summary

This classic edition of Alan Parkin’s landmark textbook provides a clear, fundamental grounding in cognitive psychology for undergraduate students new to the subject. Essential Cognitive Psychology presents the reader with highly accessible overviews of all the core topics in the field. These introductions are designed to provide a strong basis for developing further interest in cognitive psychology, whilst at the same time forming self-contained accounts suitable for all students whose training requires a degree-level competence in Psychology.

Beginning with a chapter on the origins of cognitive psychology, which facilitates an understand of the topic as a whole, the book then goes on to cover visual perception, attention, memory, knowledge, imagery, language, and reasoning and problem solving. Each chapter includes a number of helpful pedagogical features, including a list of key terms highlighted in the text and a series of revision questions which address key issues in the chapter.

Written by an internationally recognised scientist and well-respected book author, and now with a brand new introduction from Jamie Ward, author of The Student’s Guide to Cognitive Neuroscience, Essential Cognitive Psychology will continue to be essential reading for students who require a thorough grounding in the topic without the specialization of more advanced textbooks.
