Core and established topics such as memory, attention, categorization, perception, and language are considered in depth, and from a fresh perspective, yet three chapters on cognitive neuroscience and two chapters on computational and mathematical modelling are a particularly innovative feature of this Handbook.
The Handbook is divided into the following sections:
Section I: Perception, Attention and Action
Section II: Learning and Memory
Section III: Language
Section IV: Reasoning and Decision-Making
Section V: Cognitive Neuropsychology
Section VI: Modelling Cognition
Coherent, authoritative, international and accessible to both advanced students as well as researchers, the Handbook of Cognition represents a guided tour of the research literature in cognitive psychology and cognitive science. Whether an established researcher in this field, or someone approaching it for the first time at a senior level, this volume will be indispensable reading and a reference for many years to come.
