Cognitive Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies critically reflects upon 15 of the most influential cognitive psychology papers ever published by researchers such as Chomsky, Loftus, Tulving, and Stroop. This book will familiarise you with the classic studies and show you how they have influenced subsequent research, right up to the present day. This second edition has been updated in light of new research and now contains comments from the living classic researchers on the chapters about their work. 

This book is ideal for those studying cognitive psychology at the undergraduate level. 

Revisiting the Classic Studies
is a series of texts that introduces readers to the studies in psychology that changed the way we think about core topics in the discipline today.  It provokes students to ask more interesting and challenging questions about the field by encouraging a deeper level of engagement both with the details of the studies themselves and with the nature of their contribution. Edited by leading scholars in their field and written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works and their theoretical and empirical impact, and then discuss the ways in which thinking and research have advanced in the years since the studies were conducted.

Michael W. Eysenck is Emeritus Professor at the University of Roehampton and Emeritus Professor and Honorary Fellow at Royal Holloway University of London. 

David Groome was Senior Academic and Head of the Psychology Department at the University of Westminster, London.
