COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IN AND OUT OF THE LABORATORY First Canadian Edition is the most applied cognitive psychology textbook on the market, and the first to offer examples supported by Canadian research! The authors present brain function - an abstract and difficult topic - in a way that is manageable for undergraduates. Unlike other cognitive psychology textbooks, COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY includes extensive coverage of gender, cultural, and individual differences as well as cognitive development through adolescence. In this edition, an additional chapter on the brain has been added and more on neuroscience and neuropsychology has been integrated throughout. Through hands-on practice and reinforcement, students learn both the importance and personal relevance of understanding brain function.
