The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Psychology, Hardback Book


Cognitive psychology has matured and flourished in the last half-century, as new theories, research tools, and theoretical frameworks have allowed cognitive psychologists and researchers to explore a broad array of topics.

In the same vein, the depth of understanding and the methodological and theoretical sophistication have also grown in wonderful ways.

Given the expanse of the field, an up-to-date and inclusive resource such as this handbook is needed for aspiringgeneralists who wish to read the book cover to cover, and for the many readers who are simply curious to know the current happenings in other cognition laboratories. Guided by this need, this volume's 64 chapters cover all aspects of cognition, spanning perceptual issues, attention, memory, knowledge representation, language, emotional influences, judgment, problem solving, and the study of individual differences in cognition.

Additional chapters turn to the control of complex actions and the social, cultural, and developmental context of cognition.

The authors include a mix of well-established influential figures and younger colleagues in order to gain anunderstanding of the field's forward trajectory.

The volume also includes a mix of "tutorial" chapters and chapters that powerfully represent a particular research team's point of view.
