"Eysenck and Brysbaert have produced the ideal introduction to cognitive psychology. It combines breadth of coverage with a depth of scholarship that allows the text to be readily accessible without being overly simplistic, draws on the best examples of contemporary research while incorporating important historical perspectives, and engages the reader with established findings and scientific challenges alike." Robert Logie, Professor of Human Cognitive Neuroscience, University of Edinburgh, UK "A splendid introduction to cognitive psychology that emphasises the applications of the subject, and how people actually manage to live and operate in the world. The level of detail is just right. It is written in a lively and engaging manner, and will quickly take a reader who knows nothing of the area to a level of considerable expertise." Trevor Harley, Chair of Cognitive Psychology, University of Dundee, UK "As stated by the title, this book is a fundamental for any psychology student. Despite the big challenge of presenting what we know about human cognition, Eysenck and Brysbaert manage to cover all domains of cognitive psychology, while providing clear learning objectives, definitions of the most important concepts, and helpful examples or activities to support step-by-step students in their discovery of this exciting field of psychology." Valérie Camos, Professor of Developmental Psychology, University of Fribourg, Switzerland "Fundamentals of Cognition by Eysenck and Brysbaert is a great introductory textbook on cognition. At the beginning of each chapter the learning objectives are given and throughout the book important key terms are listed. One aspect that makes this book really compelling is that in each chapter there is a section called "in the real world" where the students can learn how findings from cognition research are used in everyday life. This makes this book unique, and unlike all others." Jan Theeuwes, Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands…mehr
