    One thought on “Cognitive Psychology and its Implications”

    1. Overall, Cognitive Psychology and Its Implication by John R Anderson was an easy read It made cognitive psychology understandable The book neatly combines experimental cognitive psychology into mundane examples e.g the section that is titled implications Among some of the examples cited, in the implications subsections are why it is difficult to drive and speak on a cell phone, how have advertisers used knowledge of cognitive psychology, and how the method of loci helps us recall Nonetheless, th [...]

    2. This textbook by Anderson was a very easy read on cognitive psychology The book starts slowly with the basic ideas of psychobiology such as brain structure, neurons, etc and slowly progresses to the main concepts of cognitive psychology For those that are unfamiliar with cognitive psychology, it is focused on understanding how our brain works The book goes over subjects such as how our brain performs tasks such as perception, attention, memory, problem solving, reasoning, and language comprehens [...]

    3. Anderson s first chapter provided a brief but efficient overview on cognitive psychology, including its history, research evolution, and neurological components He goes on to discuss in later chapters how human s visual information processing recognition and speech recognition influence our perception Anderson has a nice way of providing ample examples and illustrations to help the reader get a better grasp on the material he is presenting He discusses in detail additional cognitive functions in [...]

    4. A nice book explaining how brain works Provide a nice insight of thoughts and perception mechanisms If you ever wondered why, for instance, you cannot read a text and listen to someone at the same time and still fully understanding both, this book is for you I actually wanted to know about human learning mechanisms and process This book is actually not quite centered around this question, but provides some interesting stuff around memory and knowledge processing acquisition.

    5. Many theories results have been misrepresented in an effort to dumb down the material e.g Biederman s recognition by component theory, the discussion of the case of the protangonist of Memento, etc I would not choose this as a textbook for an upper division course.

    6. Very very very well written text with lucid prose and clearly explained useful examples Recommended as a self contained text with upto date review of developments in cognitive psychology as well as cognitive science.
