Cognitive Psychology

Most popular at the top

  • Memory, Consciousness and the Brainby Endel Tulving

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Memory and consciousness have been objects of fascination to psychologists and other brain scientists for over one hundred years. Because of the complexity of the two topics, however, and despite great efforts spent on their study, the progress in their understanding over most of this time has been rather slow. Recently, thanks to new techniques and... more...

  • Hypothesis-testing Behaviourby Fenna H. Poletiek

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    How do people search evidence for a hypothesis? A well documented answer in cognitive psychology is that they search for confirming evidence. However, the rational strategy is to try to falsify the hypothesis. This book critically evaluates this contradiction. Experimental research is discussed against the background of philosophical and formal theories... more...

  • Inside Case-Based Reasoningby Christopher K. Riesbeck; Roger C. Schank

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

    Introducing issues in dynamic memory and case-based reasoning, this comprehensive volume presents extended descriptions of four major programming efforts conducted at Yale during the past several years. Each descriptive chapter is followed by a companion chapter containing the micro program version of the information. The authors emphasize that... more...

  • Evolutionary Psychologyby Christopher Badcock

    Wiley 2013; US$ 79.95 US$ 69.29

    According to evolutionary biologists, we are the minders of our genes. But, as Christopher Badcock points out in this book, it is only recently that evolutionists have realized that minders need minds, and that evolution needs psychology to fill the yawning gap between genes and behaviour. Evolutionary Psychology assumes no prior knowledge of the... more...

  • Life-Span Maintenance of Knowledgeby Harry P. Bahrick; Lynda K. Hall; Melinda K. Baker

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 64.95

    This volume describes how well we maintain the knowledge we acquire throughout life. Research traditionally focuses on memory for events that are retained over short time periods that can be accommodated in experiments. This book, by contrast, uniquely describes the evolution of methods suitable for investigating memory of complex knowledge acquired... more...

  • Introduction to Memory Development During Childhood and Adolescenceby Wolfgang Schneider; Michael Pressley

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 30.95

    Memory development has been a central topic in developmental psychology for the past 30 years. This volume summarizes the research achievements during that era and relates those achievements to work on memory development conducted throughout the 20th century. An abridgement of Schneider and Pressley's previous work ( Memory Development Between Two... more...

  • Intersections in Basic and Applied Memory Researchby David G. Payne; Frederick G. Conrad

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 47.95

    In recent years there has been increasing interaction between basic and applied memory researchers, ranging from heated debates to highly productive collaborations. This collection of papers -- based on presentations at the Third Practical Aspects of Memory conference -- reviews the progress, as well as obstacles to progress, in the ongoing collaboration... more...

  • Knowledge Representationby Arthur B. Markman

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 63.95

    Knowledge representation is fundamental to the study of mind. All theories of psychological processing are rooted in assumptions about how information is stored. These assumptions, in turn, influence the explanatory power of theories. This book fills a gap in the existing literature by providing an overview of types of knowledge representation techniques... more...

  • Learning As Self-organizationby Karl H. Pribram; Joseph S. King

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 173.95

    A year before his death, B.F. Skinner wrote that "There are two unavoidable gaps in any behavioral account: one between the stimulating action of the environment and the response of the organism and one between consequences and the resulting change in behavior. Only brain science can fill those gaps. In doing so, it completes the account; it does not... more...

  • Localist Connectionist Approaches To Human Cognitionby Jonathan Grainger; Arthur M. Jacobs; Arthur Jacobs

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This volume provides an overview of a relatively neglected branch of connectionism known as localist connectionism. The singling out of localist connectionism is motivated by the fact that some critical modeling strategies have been more readily applied in the development and testing of localist as opposed to distributed connectionist models (models... more...
