Cognitive Psychology by Stephen Michael Kosslyn

Book Description

For courses in Cognitive Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Learning and Memory, Philosophy of Mind, and Philosophy of Psychology. The first book that fully integrates information about the brain and neural processing into the standard curriculum in cognitive psychology. Based on a need for a text that could accurately, productively, and seamlessly integrate information on both the brain and neural processing, Edward E. Smith (Columbia University) and Stephen M. Kosslyn (Harvard University) created Cognitive Psychology: Mind and Brain 1.e. Without question, the study of cognition has progressed enormously over the past decade. Most importantly, much of the recent progress in cognitive studies has come from the advent of cognitive neuroscience, which uses neuroscientific methods and data to address psychological issues. However, throughout years of academic teaching, the authors came to realize that no currently available book was able to summarize and make accessible the major findings, theories, and research the field had produced. Now, in this text's first edition, these issues have been addressed. Using findings in neuroscience to illuminate and motivate key distinctions in cognitive psychology, the authors have written a cognitive psychology book that is informed by neuroscience - the first of its kind and one poised to set a new standard in undergraduate cognitive studies.

Clear and to the Point by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Clear and to the Point, Paperback (September 2007)

In this book, Stephen Kosslyn, a renowned neuroscientist, presents eight simple principles for constructing a presentation that takes advantage of the information modern science has provided about how perception, memory, and cognition operate.

Wet Mind by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Wet Mind, Paperback (August 1995)

The last dizzying decade of work in neurobiology, artificial intelligence, cognitive science and medicine has begun to part the veil on the secrets of the brain's operation. Kosslyn and Koenig put these new developments in perspective in this accessible introduction to the mind/brain structure. Illustrated.

Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Frontiers in Cognitive Neuroscience, Paperback (April 1995)

This text provides students and researchers with a foundation for examining how brain function gives rise to mental activities such as perception, memory and language. It is grouped into sections that cover attention, vision, auditory and somatosensory systems, memory and higher cortical.

Image and Mind by Stephen Michael Kosslyn Image and Mind, Paperback (July 1986)

Kosslyn makes an impressive case for the view that images are critically involved in the life of the mind. In a series of ingenious experiments, he provides hard evidence that people can construct elaborate mental images, search them for specific information, and perform such other internal operations as mental rotation.
