Sensation And Perception (eBook)
de John H. Krantz e Bennett L. Schwartz
Sobre o livro
Bennett Schwartz and John Krantz's Sensation and Perception, second edition, is a cutting edge and highly readable account of modern sensation and perception from both a cognitive and neurocognitive perspective. Written in an accessible and engaging manner, it is directed towards psychology students who come into this course with little preparation or background in the biological, neurological, or methodological principles that make up the core of the course. Rich in examples and applications to everyday life, the text includes an emphasis on areas of interest to students, namely, music, clinical applications, neuropsychology, and interesting animal perception systems. The fully-updated second edition of this text includes two new features: Exploration, a revamped version of the In Depth feature from the first edition, offers students the opportunity to learn more about special topics in Sensation & Perception and, a new Ponder Further section at the end of each chapter invites students to engage in critical thinking about chapter topics. New topical coverage of developmental considerations has also been added throughout the text.
