Kognitive Psychologie hat sich seit einem halben Jahrhundert aus einem naturwissenschaftlichen Methodenansatz entwickelt, psychologische Prozesse des Wahrnehmens, Erinnerns, Denkens und Lernens zu modellieren und systemisch experimentell untersuchen zu können. Als Lehrstoff der Allgemeinen Psychologie umfasst sie Prüfungswissen im Diplomstudiengang Psychologie und in neuro- und computerwissenschaftlichen sowie kognitionswissenschaftlichen Masterstudiengängen. John R. Anderson hat in der aktuellen Auflage seines Lehrbuchklassikers die modernen Erkenntnisse der Gehirnforschung und der Kognitionswissenschaft zusammengeführt und aufgezeigt, wie sich Prozesse der Wahrnehmung und Verarbeitung von Reizinformation mit Gedächtnisprozessen verknüpfen, die ihrerseits die Grundlage geistiger Fähigkeiten wie Sprache, Schlussfolgern, Problemlösen und Fähigkeitserwerb bilden. In den 13 Kapiteln ist der Prüfungsstoff kompakt und übersichtlich gegliedert, anschaulich illustriert und durch Merksätze zu jedem Themenabschnitt einprägsam zusammengefasst. Wer dieses Buch zur Prüfungsvorbereitung in die Hand nimmt, wird nicht nur zielorientiert lernen, sondern auch mit vielen spannenden Entdeckungen über individuelle kognitive Fähigkeiten belohnt.

`Kellogg lucidly presents the basics of what historical and contemporary psychological science has taught us about the workings of the human mind. Students will enjoy learning from this book†- Elizabeth Loftus, University of California, Irvine `Fundamentals of Cognitive Psychology combines a thorough review of classic data with highly relevant contemporary every-day examples. The text draws a wide arc that encompasses most aspects of cognitive psychology-ranging from visual consciousness to knowledge representation, language, and problem solving. Kellogg illustrates the material with many relevant and insightful examples of cognitive disorders, which are certain to pique students’ interest' - Stephan Lewandowsky, University of Western Australia This clear and concise text offers undergraduate students a brief but solid introduction to the fundamental concepts of cognitive psychology. Integrating the latest developments in cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, emotion, and cognitive development throughout the text, author Ronald T. Kellogg provides a view of what is happening at the leading edge of the field today. Key Features: " Focuses on the “essentials†of cognitive psychology: Does not bog students down in tangential or esoteric asides or in topics more suitable for discussion in advanced follow-up courses. " Integrates coverage of neuroscience: A four-color insert of cognitive tasks that students can replicate and related brain images (PET and fMRI) helps students develop a deeper understanding of the neuroscience behind cognitive processes. " Emphasizes practical applications: Concrete implications of cognitive research are woven into the narrative of the text rather than boxed in inserts that students would be tempted to ignore as unnecessary detail. " Highlights important concepts: Margin notes summarize important concepts, providing further clarification when needed and giving students previewing and reviewing guideposts.

Cognitive Science is a single-source undergraduate text that broadly surveys the theories and empirical results of cognitive science within a consistent computational perspective. In addition to covering the individual contributions of psychology, philosophy, linguistics, and artificial intelligence to cognitive science, the book has been revised to introduce the connectionist approach as well as the classical symbolic approach and adds a new chapter on cognitively related advances in neuroscience. Cognitive science is a rapidly evolving field that is characterized by considerable contention among different views and approaches. Cognitive Science presents these in a relatively neutral manner. It covers many new orientations theories and findings, embedding them in an integrated computational perspective and establishing a sense of continuity and contrast with more traditional work in cognitive science. The text assumes no prerequisite knowledge, introducing all topics in a uniform, accessible style. Many topics, such as natural language processing and vision, however, are developed in considerable depth, which allows the book to be used with more advanced undergraduates or even in beginning graduate settings.
