Book DescriptionAnderson offers systematic and accessible presentation of the theoretical foundations of higher mental processes, with each important idea made concrete by specific examples and experiments. Focusing on knowledge representation as the central issue of cognition research, the book emphasizes an information processing approach to the field, but offers thorough coverage of the cognitive neuroscience approach as well (extensively updated for this edition).
Reflecting the evolution of current research, the new Seventh Edition looks closely at the dramatic contributions of cognitive neuroscience to the understanding of cognitive functions. New coverage, new color insert, new pedagogy, and other content and format innovations, make this definitive new edition the most student-friendly yet.
Very easy to read and understand chapters.

Overall, this book is a good survey textbook for undergraduate cognition classes or clinicians who need a basic background in cognitive psychology.
