Description

This highly readable book provides an integrative treatment of important issues involving human learning, understanding and remembering. The book covers most of the major recent developments in the field and includes older research as it relates to recent developments. Not merely a collection of facts or theories, the text presents a limited number of key experiments in each chapter. The author clearly states the experimental method and results, and shows how the study advances knowledge. This book should be of interest to students studying behavioural science as a main or subsidiary subject.show more
