Description

Sensation and Perception, Fifth Edition maintains the standard of clarity and coverage set in earlier editions, which make the technical scientific information accessible to a wide range of students. Retaining its traditionally clear writing style, this new edition boasts a thoroughly revised art program and over a thousand new references (many from the past few years). In addition, the book includes thirteen In-Depth sections, each of which explores a current “hot” research topic to provide a sense of how researchers ask questions with subjects varying from the eye movements involved in reading to the impact of odors (e.g., pheromones) on behavior. On-line resources provide both students and educators with demonstrations and additional information, including research that will appear after the book’s publication. Above all, two professors who have received national awards for their teaching are fully responsible for the content and organization of the text. As a result, it features strong pedagogy, abundant student-friendly examples, and an engaging conversational style.
