The revised and updated edition features increased emphasis on cognitive neuroscience; a new chapter on cognition and emotion; an entire chapter on consciousness; increased coverage of applied topics, such as recovered memories, medical expertise, and informal reasoning; and more focus on individual differences throughout the text

Psychologists have also grappled with other complex issues, such as how to classify abnormal

Memory by Alan D Baddeley( Book )

33 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People seem to be intrigued by memory and by its sometimes spectacular failure in (for example) people with amnesia. However, students of memory sometimes fail to retain this fascination. The reason is clear: in order to study memory we must carry out carefully-designed experiments, which can seem boring even when they are exciting science. Fortunately, we now know enough about memory to relate laboratory studies to the world beyond. In other words, our scientific knowledge of memory and how it works can help us to explain those aspects of memory that most people find of greatest interest. -- Back cover
Perspectives on psychology by Michael W Eysenck( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a title in the modular "Principles in Psychology Series", designed for A-level and other introductory courses, aiming to provide students embarking on psychology courses with the necessary background and context. One aspect of this is to consider contemporary psychology in the light of its historical development. Another aspect is to examine some of the major controversies which have dominated psychology over the centuries. Yet another aspect is to consider some of the major areas of psychology eg social, developmental, cognitive in terms of what they have to offer in the quest for an understanding of human behaviour.; The book also addresses key issues which need to be considered as psychology matures into a fully fledged experimental and scientific discipline. For example, how much do laboratory experiments tell us about how people behave in the real world? And how far is it ethically permissable for psychologists to go in their pursuit of knowledge?

15 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cognitive psychology : revisiting the classic studies( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revisiting the Classic Studies is a series of texts that introduces readers to the studies in psychology that changed the way we think about core topics in the discipline today. It provokes students to ask more interesting and challenging questions about the field by encouraging a deeper level of engagement both with the details of the studies themselves and with the nature of their contribution. Edited by leading scholars in their field and written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the chapters in each text provide details of the original works and their theoretical and empirical impact, and then discuss the ways in which thinking and research has advanced in the years since the studies were conducted. Cognitive Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies traces 14 ground-breaking studies by researchers such as Chomsky, Tulving and Stroop to re-examine and reflect on their findings and engage in a lively discussion of the subsequent work that they have inspired. Suitable for students on cognitive psychology courses at all levels, as well as anyone with an enquiring mind
Anxiety : the cognitive perspective by Michael W Eysenck( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theorists are increasingly arguing that it is fruitful to approach anxiety from the cognitive perspective, and the empirical evidence supports that contention. The cognitive perspective is also adopted in this book, but the approach represents a development and extension of earlier ones. For example, most previous theories and research have been based on anxiety either in clinical or in normal groups. In contrast, one of the central themes of this book is that there are great advantages to be gained from a joint consideration of clinical and normal anxiety. Another theme of this book is tha

Anxiety and cognition : a unified theory by Michael W Eysenck( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is argued in this book that there are three major approaches to anxiety. First, there is anxiety as an emotional state. Second, there is trait anxiety as a dimension of personality. Third, there is anxiety as a set of anxiety disorders. What is attempted is to produce a unified theory of anxiety which integrates all these major approaches. According to this unified theory, there are four sources of information which influence the level of experienced anxiety: (1) experimental stimulation; (2) internal physiological activity; (3) internal cognitions, (e.g., worries); and (4) one's own behavi
