Synopsis

Handbook of Cognition by Koen Lamberts

The Handbook of Cognition provides a definitive synthesis of the most up-to-date and advanced work in cognitive psychology in a single volume. The editors have gathered together a team of world-leading researchers in specialist areas of the field, both traditional and `hot' new areas, to present a benchmark - in terms of theoretical insight and advances in methodology - of the discipline; a thorough overview of the most significant and current research in cognitive psychology that will serve this academic community like no other volume. 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.
