Foundations of Cognitive Psychology PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Foundations of Cognitive Psychology free pdf Scientists from many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, biology and neuroscience, contribute to the study of cognition. Cognitive psychology, the science of the human mind and of how people process information, is at the core of empirical investigations into the nature of mind and thought. This anthology is based on the assumptions that cognitive psychology is at heart empirical philosophy. Many of the core questions about thought, language, perception, memory and knowledge of other people's minds were for centuries the domain of philosophy. The book begins with the philosophical foundations of inquiry into the nature of mind and thought, in particular the writings of Descartes, and then covers the principal topics of cognitive psychology including memory, attention and decision making. The book organizes a daunting amount of information, underlining the essentials, while also introducing readers to the ambiguities and controversies of research. It is arranged thematically and includes many topics not typically taught in cognition courses, including human factors and ergonomics, evolutionary psychology, music cognition and experimental design.
